In the Queue Wednesday

My husband and I visited my Grandmother in Missouri earlier this month. I had been hoping to get together for some pattern/fabric shopping with Lori, but it didn't work out this time. :(

Of course, it wasn't nearly as fun alone, but I did go into Columbia and spend an hour or so at the local Joann's. And this is one of the 3 patterns that I brought home:

I think I'll go for the view in the photograph - semi-long sleeves and no collar. The darts pulling the blouse in around the waist look great on the model, but may be a mistake for the shape that I am currently in (or not in, depending on how you look at it.) We'll see...

And here's the fabric I picked for this pattern:

Now, you may be thinking, "Oh no, she didn't!" - but this is exactly the kind of trouble that I get into when I go pattern/fabric shopping alone, without the sage advice that a more stylish and sophisticated friend can provide.

Hopefully next time I'm in Missouri, Lori will be able to save me from myself! ;)

In the meantime, this pattern and fabric have joined the pile of projects waiting for me in my sewing room. I don't know when, but I'll get to it someday... It's in the queue! :)

I love that pattern and the fabric! I think I could wear that pattern with some adjustments to the mid-section. Perhaps, I would have to make shallower darts.

I made this blouse same view you are going to make and love it! Good luck with it.

Lovely fabric.

I like the fabric and the pattern, Gwen. I do hope I can join you next time, too.
