Today I'm sharing a new purple Margo Blouse for spring. I stitched this one up in a lovely Anna Sui silk that's been sitting in my stash for a year and I'm quite proud I cut into it because it was becoming one of those fabrics that was too precious to cut into.
My Margo Blouse Pinterest board was the inspiration for this version. I made View B but left the elastic out of the sleeve. It looks fresh and it's right on trend with the bell sleeve craze. I sewed it up in about 3 hours and brightened up my closet.
I've been quite busy in my sewing studio these days and while I sew I like to watch Netflix and listen to podcasts. Unfortunately when I get ready to sew I find I spend the first 15 minutes figuring out what I'm going to watch or listen to. Does anyone else have this problem? This week I binge listened to The Maker Style podcast hosted by Rachel. She interviews different people in the sewing industry (my favorite is the Kate from The Foldline episode) and has a modern take on garment sewing. I don't just listen to sewing podcasts and I'd love some suggestions. What are you listening to or watching?
