While preparing for SSS I’ve been posting my creations in the Flickr pool as have some of the other participants and one participant posted 3 JJ blouses from Burdastyle that are lovely, they all look different and are a wardrobe staple. My wardrobe is lacking in the blouse area. I usually wear blouses to work but since I only work on the weekends I only have a few and they are ill-fitting.
Should I turn my sewing room into a blouse factory for a week or so?
I could use the same pattern (I have JJ and another blouse pattern that I adore) for 3 or 4 blouses, use very different fabrics and alter the patterns a little bit, by varying the number of ruffles or the length of the blouse.
I think that the repetitive actions involved in making the same thing several times would streamline my sewing because after making the 1st one I won’t have to keep looking at the directions.
Do any of ya’ll do this when making basics? I think I’ll try this out in a few weeks after I gather supplies.
