A fabulous Birthday shirt for the best sister ever!

Just in case anyone thinks I have not opened the sewing room door...

(well you were partially right! The flower beds have been calling my name)

BUT... I was also hard at work at a very special gift for a very special person. My Sister :) I made her a new blouse, something that is perfect for her and check out the last picture.... she does look fabulous, she makes my blouse look beautiful.





The pattern: the same pattern as my almost done 60's shirt :)


The fabric: a 60inch wide rayon print with a wide border on one side. I played with the pattern pieces for quite a while and even enlisted some advice and opinions from mom and my dear hubby on several different fabric placement options.



Up close of the front yoke detail and the binding on the sleeve hem. They were cut from the border detail of the fabric.




The Back: has a slight curve of the hem to cover the tush.




See... she makes it look great!!
