Statement sleeves are the current trend so here is my first attempt. The Vogue Pattern VP931 and I had some great fun constructing this blouse. I didn’t love my fabric choice, just because the fabric tends to exaggerate the seams. Although the fabric wasn’t my fav to work with it was great practice and I really love the pattern. I recommend the pattern and thought it was easy to follow.
Here are some construction pictures.
And here you have the final product. I love the sleeves. I’m planning on doing at least one other view from the pattern.
I did an invisible zipper instead of traditional because I prefer them and I added an inch to the length since I’m part amazon woman.
The sleeves were surprisingly not in my way when my little guy interrupted my photo shoot for a cuddle. So momming is a possibility while sporting the latest fashion. LOL!
Next week it’s the key hole dress blouses in the reveal!
These sleeves look amazing! Great job! I understand how fabric can make or break a design, but you pulled this one off beautifully! Love the cuddle shot! Please show the next one you make; would love to see it in a different material!!! 🙂
