Self Stitched September 29

I have taken a day off work today. Instead I am spending the day at home - sewing, hopefully, although my son has a fellow 8 year old guest, so there will be some child interactive activities and probably afternoon tea with the other mother.

The outfit is my old Vogue denim skirt - slightly dressed up in honour of visitors with Burda World of Fashion 8-2009-117 (posted about here). I think of this blouse as a t shirt,tending to wear it with jeans or a casual skirt, although the cotton batiste is much more cool and airy to wear than a knit.

I love this top - I need to add it to my list of things I'm GOING to sew. I just bought some fabric that would be perfect...
Although it isn't as pretty as that green. It really is a lovely color on you.

I am keen to make this blouse for summer. I've never seen a dud version.

The color of this top is very nice on you! Seeing you in denim skirts makes me realize I meant to make myself one for about three years. Need to bump it up on the list!

love this blouse on you! Did you do anything to decrease the waist? It looked so boxy in the Magazin that i did not take it into account. But it doesnt look so boxy on your hourglas figure. Any trick there?
