I've been having a great time just sewing and playing for the past few weeks, but the dream must end. I've got some work starting Monday, and hopefully this is the start to a slightly busier season, because while there is no doubt that I prefer to not work (not to commute 4 hours a day to be more precise), a girl has to get the means travel somehow. Especially now that I'm thinking about Portugal in the fall!
So, this is the Camas blouse by Thread Theory. I made it last fall, so I don't remember much about the construction. I made this out of a cheap knit I had in my stash to make a wearable muslin. Everything worked out pretty well, so I need to make some more! I LOVE this pattern! This is a shirt I could live in. I hope Thread Theory continues to put out women's patterns! I bought one of the men's for my brother in law, but I don't sew for enough guys.
There is no need for actual buttons, I'm sure everyone can pull it over their head. I just sewed the buttons through both plackets. I can't even begin to imagine what sewing a buttonhole on that fabric would have been like *shudder*
I also used a woven for the yokes, single layer or it would have been too thick. I cut the same size as the rest of the blouse, but I think I'll up the size a bit for a non-stretch fabric across the upper back in the future, it seems tighter than the rest of the shirt.
I may have changed the neckline on this, I don't really remember. It seems fine on this, so I think I must have raised it.
The cheapness of the fabric makes it stretch and hang a bit weird off the placket, but I don't really care. I better knit probably wouldn't do that. I highly recommend this pattern and will be making many more in the future, no doubt. I love this muslin, the red is a gorgeous colour and the woven is one of my favourites, so it all worked out :)
What a rubbish review, lol. I don't remember anything about making it :P
