NEW PATTERN ALERT!

Now that I have your full attention, I can tell you that Adrianna from Hey June released a new pattern yesterday, the Biscayne blouse!

I was lucky enough to be one of the testers. This one was quite a challenge, because it required some skills I didn’t know I had. It features a hidden button placket (which I had never done before!) and a welt pocket (this was my third try). It has quite a classic style, but you can make it your own, depending on you fabric choices!Biscayne blouse_Diana_Miss Castelinhos-01

I chose to combine a silky drapey sliiiiippperyyy rayon with a cotton chambray (my latest fabric obsession!). It was not what I initially had in mind and there are a few mistakes, but overall, I’m happy with the result.

The instructions really take you step-by-step. Although it was my first time using some of these techniques, I never felt overwhelmed. It took me a while to finish this one, but in the end, I learned something new and have a new blouse! All is good!Biscayne blouse_Diana_Miss Castelinhos-02All the testers made outstanding versions of this blouse!

    Fica-te tão bem 🙂
    Gosto imenso de ver o contraste dos dois tecidos – “super cool” como diria a minha filha <3

      Obrigada Ana! Eu gosto dos cortes clássicos, mas quero sempre dar-lhes um twist, daí os dois tecidos diferentes.

    I am obsessed with chambray too lately! I just want to make all things chambray now. 🙂 And I have that same stripey fabric but I haven’t been adventurous enough to use it yet. 🙂
    It looks great on you! And that placket looks very good for your first time, well done!

      Thanks Sara! It was fun to learn something new. Chambray is my new obsession! I’ve bought all there was left (about 4m) in my local shop, here in Setúbal. 😀
