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!

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
