Spring Palette Challenge: Sencha Blouse

Another garment completed for the Spring Palette challenge.  I'm on a roll but I know the couple of dresses that I have left will take me a bit of time. I need some instant satisfaction! 

I whipped this blouse up this weekend after I finished the Ceylon dress.  It only took me a couple of hours as the pattern is essentially just four pieces.  I hand-stitched the sleeves while watching tv in the evening.

The print is busier than I would normally wear, but I think it's perfect for Spring. Oh, and the buttons. I found these vintage buttons at Stitches West this weekend.  I love them!  More about my Stitches finds in a post later this week, but there were definitely some great new vendors that I'll have to follow.

Look at all of the buttons I've been sewing over the last few days! I'm becoming a pro.  I noticed that three of my five outfits for the Spring palette challenge have them.  Apparently my subconscious wanted me to work on my button skills.  It's been paying off.
This post will be participating in the following Linky parties:


  1. Yay, Buttonhole Queen! I adore this print and it is a brilliant choice for this blouse. I'm sure you'll wear it loads. I love your Ceylon too - I'm deffo adding that to my (too long!) queue. Great jobs!
