Sewing Workshop Salsa Blouse






I originally reviewed this 4 years ago and highly recommended it. Somehow I wrecked that blouse in the wash and I've been wanting to make another one ever since. My new version was made to go under the Anne Klein ultra-suede jacket. I wanted a soft, draped front to fill in the lack of closures. This fabric, from my stash, is a rayon crinkle with a border print. That is why one side of the front looks empty of the print. I arranged the print to be featured on the wrap over part and the back. The fabric was a nightmare to work with. Very wiggly and unstable. It also was flawed in the printing and had white streak areas I struggled to avoid..

Despite the fabric's bad attitude I love what you did with that salsa blouse. I have that pattern in my stash and had made it a few years back, but it didn't quite work with the fabric I chose. You've inspired me to try again.

Ann - I think that comment from jojosho is spam - don't open it.
