Brown & Salmon Sencha Blouse

I made this blouse using Colette Pattern's Sencha pattern and some polyester charmeuse. I chose Version 3 with the keyhole neckline and tie. This was a fun project because it involved a lot of hand sewing along the hems and facings.
My machine absolutely refused to make buttonholes in this slippery fabric so I cheated by sewing the non-functional buttons on top of the functional snaps down the back.

This is another machine washable blouse that is in constant rotation in my work & weekend wardrobes. It looks as great tucked into my brown pencil skirt as it does with jeans and a cardigan!  I will definitely be making more blouses from this pattern for spring.
