Altering the Joyful Blouse

I made this blouse recently, but it’s still too cold to wear it.  When do I get to wear skirts and sandals here?  I can’t wait. This is the Joyful Top from Hot Patterns, and the pattern is FREE! (It’s also a fundraiser for children with cancer.)



I had to make some alterations to the pattern, as usual, since their largest size is too small for me.

I used a tropical print fabric I bought in Hawaii many years ago, as well as some denim scraps, and only purchased the Laguna black jersey for the back.

It wasn’t difficult to sew, except that I still struggle with hemming knits.

I’ll post some pics of it when it’s warmer.
