Day two brings another Colette pattern. This time it is the Taffy blouse from the Colette Sewing Handbook. Sewing this blouse was the first time I had used bias tape, sheer fabric, and french seams. The fabric was a $2.00 Wal-mart clearance find so the whole blouse cost me less than five bucks.
I made Taffy last spring but haven’t worn it until today. I had planned to wear it with a red Ginger skirt but never got around to making the skirt so the blouse has been stuffed in the back of my closet. Yay for MMM’13 pushing me to give Taffy some love!
I also saw an embroidered knit version of Taffy in the flickr MMM’13 group pool that I may try. One of my sewing goals this year is to find ways to use the same patterns more often without creating the exact same garment so seeing other sewist’s takes on certain patterns should be helpful and give me additional options to try.
