Its a blouse!

Yes! I finished my first voluntary made piece of clothing! It was fun, but the neckline and the sleeves where hard to do, need more practice with that kind of work. Some other tips
* as always, think first, and then take action...(instructions: nip the seam allowance. me: nip nip nip...this can be right....wonder what she means by nipping?)
* use a good steady safety-pin when putting the elastic in place (I managed to broke one inside the blouse...)
* sew sloooowly whenever tackling a difficult seam (I have this illusion that if I sew really fast I will look like a professional and as consequence sew like one...unfortunately it does not work like that)
