This week I finished a blouse that I have been working on for 3 weeks. It was a little more advance than what I was sewing before and I used a new slippery fabric that made sewing more of a challenge. Also, it took almost 3 full hours just to cut out the pattern- crazy! I'm so glad I decided to take on this blouse because I learned so much! I learned how to make pleats and sew a princess seam, things I didn't know how to do before.
These sewing classes were taken at Sew LA- I've been going there for a couple months now and they are awesome! This particular class was taught by the talented Christine Haynes- she's actually trying to kickstart her new line of sewing patterns!! Help her reach her goal of $6,500 to launch her adorable patterns here.
The fabric sorta reminds me of firecrackers and the 4th of July. I guess I'm a little late as 4th of July was almost a month ago- but hey! Maybe next year I can wear it!

I love this blouse so much that I may just make another one. Have you done something that was challenging but then you were glad that you did it?
