linen blouse

No time for creative titles. I have ten minutes to post before picking up the kids.

This is from the same pattern as the crabby pants. A rare occurence of actually using the pattern and fabric I bought for it within the same season it should be worn. The top is VERY loose fitting. More so than I would have liked in the shoulders, but I'm wearing it now and it's not bothering me. We'll see how it washes up. (I did prewash and dry the fabric, but it'll be interesting to see how it all lays fresh out of the dryer, as I do not iron linen. What's the point?)

What drew me to the pattern was the detailing on the front hem. Very Flax or Eileen Fisher.

And I can tell you again how much I love my serger. The inside makes me as happy as the outside with that machine. This last picture is a truer representation of the color - at least on my computer.

I like this so much! Easy breezy summer shirt. Sergers are amazing. You do a nice job.

I LOVE Flax clothing.(Englehart "I am happy")
And yup, Eileen Fisher, too.

I have 2 Asian children; boys almost 7 and almost 8.
