New blouse project


You didn't think that I would give away the February issue of La Mia Boutique without securing my own copy first? Well, I didn't think so!
What I like most about this issue are the shirt blouse patterns that are made in various plaid fabrics. They all got very interesting cuts and neat details, which is just the sort of thing I am always looking for in patterns. Of course they would be perfect in plaid, but in the interest of stash reduction I will instead use a striped shirting that I picked up in London last year. I have also just bought David Coffin's book about shirt making and plan to try some of his techniques out so that I can review the book afterwards.  We'll see how it goes!
