Dotty seersucker Weekend blouse

So. I’ve had this top finished for quite a while now but haven’t yet blogged about it because of, well, the sleeves!

This is what the top looked like originally.


Just blouse length in a lightweight Japanese seersucker that I had bought for another top that never materialized. This time, I thought I’d try out the longer sleeves. It looks pretty good on the hanger, right? But it just hung really oddly on me. So after some thought I decided that I had to go with short sleeves after all.


I had to hem the sleeves with the overlocking intact, which makes the sleeve hems a little more stiff but I think I can live with it.


It looks a little boxy on me, I think. But it’s lightweight and so very comfortable in our hot weather, so it’s still a keeper!

    looks so professional! hmm..i wonder what it would look like if you made it into a tank or sleeveless. i agree w/you regarding the lightweightness, very helpful in warm weather.

      Thanks, Connie! I have to tell you – hearing (or reading) the words “looks so professional” is such a great compliment for a home sew-er!

        you are so talented.. a lot of clothes that are “professionally” made aren’t as good.
