Orange Circles

This is another version of my TNT blouse, Vogue 8572 (OOP) in a wonderful orange self patterned linen that I purchased in the USA last year.

For this version I chose to do French Seams and use Hong Kong finishes on the zip seam as well as the armholes so this has taken this blouse up a notch or two.

There is not much else to tell you, so here are the photos:




Note the colour of the zip pull.

The zip itself is very different in colour to the zip pull, but the zip pull is what you see!

This wasn't planned to be in my SWAP, however it will go with my everyday collection and can be counted as the "one garment may be sewn before the official sewing start date" so my first SWAP piece is completed.

******************
Thank you for all the comments on the Hot Patterns Riviera Summer Breeze Tie Front Top, you have convinced me to have another go at this pattern and I will let you know the results, it may still find a new home.
******************

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year and all the very best for a fantastic and sewful 2013.

That's a fine blouse, and I like your finished seams. They make the garment so upscale.

Great finishes - you could almost wear it inside out! Happy New Year:)

Beautiful shirt! The satisfaction of seeing the inside of a garment look so perfect is only something another sewer can understand!

If you are partial to painted toes Revlon Siren 440 is the perfect shade for your top!

That top is what sewing is all about, colour, fit and finish, all perfect. And as far as the zip pull, whaaaat, as if we would expect anything else!!

Oooh, I didn't realize, at first, how cool that fabric is! A great basic!

Sue said...

Pretty, pretty fabric! Lovely pattern to showcase this fabric. All the best in 2013!

Gorgeous top! Love the zipper pull and your insides look as lovely as the outer garment. Perfection.

Beautiful, inside and out.

Carolyn said...

Lovely! The high end finishes inside really lift it up that extra notch. And, I have to say, it must be a lot cooler in Sydney than Perth if you can wear jeans... phew! :D
Wishing you all the best for a terrific and very productive 2013, Sharon!

You could wear that inside out! Just kidding. The seams do look beautiful, though. :)
