I've been busy, as usual, with school. I managed to take some time for myself and get a blouse cut out and sewn. I made some modifications to an existing pattern that I liked, but I'm still not quite happy with the pattern. The front is nice, but the back has the same amount of gathers as the front, so it billows out at my waistline. Not sure yet how to best fix it without changing the whole style of the shirt. Anyway, the blouse as-is works well for summer - loose and cool. I'll get photos posted asap.
