Blouse Project

With the weather turning cooler, I decided I should sew together my latest Casablanca Blouse. This is the fifth time I've made up this particular pattern! I really don't need any more clothes, but one day when I was at JoAnn Fabrics I spotted this fabric (which I believe is a linen or linen look) and just had to have it, especially since it was, as I recall, 40% off, making it affordable.
This blouse is so comfortable, although I do find them too warm for me to wear in the summer since I have a hard time cooling down, due probably to my fibromyalgia. Perhaps someday I'll make the long-sleeved version, which would be nice for church or those relatively warmer winter days.

Here's a close-up so you can see the fabric. If you look hard enough, you can also see one of the buttons just below the "V".
