Work Blouse

Introducing my third Pendrell!

Not much to say about this pattern as this is my third make.  This is definitely my best one- third time's the charm!

But I do have some words about this fabric.  I love it!  I went to Joann on Friday with the intention of picking up some clearance fabric to make some shirts for work.  Most of my nice shirts are black or white.  I like white a lot.  I don't love how black looks on me.  I chanced upon this fabric and loved it.  It's 100% polyester, which doesn't bother me in the mild San Diego climate, and it is super soft and buttery.  And it was mismarked and ended up being only $1/yard!  When I found that out I got 3 more yards, so you might see a dress from this fabric one day soon. 

I also love the color.  Yes it's black, and looks good paired with black (like this thrifted Ann Taylor skirt I got for only $3!)  But the autumn colors in it soften the black and looks better on me.  

We all know I'm not photographic, so just trust me that this looks really good in person. :)

Hope you all had a wonderful 3 day weekend!  I'm looking forward to my Thanksgiving sew-cation next week. :)
