It has been at least 20 years since I had sewn a piece of clothing for myself.
I always create things for other people and I love sewing, so I decided it was finally time for ME.
The blouse is made from a 50/50 cotton/linen fabric in beige/taupe and I used a commercial pattern.









I hope you like it.

This shirt looks really great, with many details and very clean sewing. It suits you fine too. And you found a nice fabric.
