Hooray! My first finished garment for 2008

McCalls 5470 View B is my first finished garment of the year. I am so happy to have it done. I plugged along at it faithfully a little bit every day and it only took me a week or so. I am very pleased with it because it does not have as many mistakes as usual. Normally I want projects done so I work pretty quickly. I usually do not redo things that are not perfect. I leave well enough alone. Not this time. I really tried to make this blouse look good inside and out. I think that the construction is pretty good. All except for the band for the collar. This was my first attempt at a banded collar and I struggled with the center front a bit. I got it to look decent but it is far from perfect. My collar on the other hand looks great. I used a method from Nancy Zieman and it turned out great. Next time I sew a collar I will document pictures and share the method. It was so easy. I loved it. Anyway, I just want to share my first finished project. Thanks for looking. Have a great Monday!

Until next time...
