I'm slowly getting over the death of Mario's jacket. I decided that I needed to get right back on the horse, but preferably a pattern that wouldn't cause me to fall off again. At least not right away.

When I made my red-white-and-navy outfit recently, I knew I wanted to make another version of that cutaway shoulder top in white, both to wear with the red-white-and-navy skirt and because I don't have a sleeveless white blouse. And because the original white one in the magazine was so pretty.

So that's what I'm working on. White cotton/lycra from Paron's at the Patternreview NY shopping day last November (yes, NancyK, it's that white shirting that I made you buy).

It's going well so far (basic structure, topstitching and shoulder and side seams; collar and facings tonight), and it's making me think about blouses. I'm wearing one today that I haven't worn in a while, and I like it much more than I remembered. It's definitely making me want to pull the pattern out again and experiment. But that's a post for another day.

LOL That white poplin is the one remaining fabric to be folded and put away. Maybe it's calling to me to finally make it into a blouse! I think that it's going to be the new Vogue princess seam blouse pattern I just bought.

I love white blouses - you really can't have too many. The one in the picture is very pretty. What Burda is it from? I don't remember it.
