Slow going

So I'm working on a blouse.  I gave you a hint here.  It's the recycled skirt, which I am aiming to turn into something like this, a ruffled blouse from the April, 2010 issue of Burda Magazine.

Except that it will only have a single ruffle and it will have a button & loop centre front closing instead of a side zipper.

The fabric is blouse-weight Thai silk - not the floaty chiffon that Burda used for their version.  So the ruffle is a little stiffer.  I could leave it off.  However, then I'd have less camouflage for this.

For what?  I hear you ask.  Well, for this:

They are not doing anything lewd, but there they are.

It's slow going because I'm not quite sure about them.  Or the ruffle.


  1. Love the blouse pattern, with or without ruffles. As a retired junior high teacher, I immediately thought lewd thoughts. :-) This will be your Kama Sutra blouse in my mind.

  2. Don't be silly, Kay! Go nuts! Ruffle, no ruffle, let those people live!
    I like the material and the pattern. :)

  3. Love the fabric, and I did not have lewd thoughts but I can see how a junior high kid would.
