The “No Fastenings Required” Blouse
This week I decided that I deserved to be a little bit lazy. So while this is not perhaps a garment specific to a vacation, it was a vacation for me to make the darn thing!
And here is my new blouse, with not a buttonhole or zipper in sight.
I am still amazed, but I actually finished the blouse in one weekend, from washing the fabric, to the final hand stitches. That may be a first for me. Perhaps is has something to do with the lack of fastenings?!
And now I have a new, easy fitting blouse. Thank you, Sew Weekly Vacation!
