Back into the sewing groove soon

I've been bad at posting lately because, honestly, I haven't been sewing! January has been strangely busy for me, and I hope things settle down soon. The origami hem coat is still a work in progress. I figured I should get my January BWOF Project of the Month out of the way first, so I cut fabric to make one of the blouses; hopefully I'll have pictures this weekend.

Adriana asked me to post some information on how the origami trim is made. I'll do that as soon as I get to it. Adriana - if you email me (my address is in the sidebar), I will try to explain it in more detail to you since you are probably anxious to get going on that!



Speaking of origami trim, I popped into Zara this past weekend while I was in Vancouver and I noticed this blouse with interesting pleating on the button placket. This is one to save this in your inspiration folder...

I haven't had any time to sew either. It's so sad!

Great inspiration blouse though!

Oh...my...gosh.
Just when I think I've seen everything there is to see in the sewing world, I find something new. That trim is just amazing!
