As promised, here is a picture of the blouse that I made. I used a summer weight Italian wool that is super soft and light weight. As it turns out, It was a little big in the chest and the sleeves were a little too short, but it still fits well enough to enjoy wearing it. It is being modeled by my six-year old (size) model, so the fit is wonkey! I'll try to get someone to take a picture of me wearing it so that you can see it better.
It was super beautiful today, and we hosted a little spring party at our house with a gaggle of neighbor kids. They all ran around and yelled and laughed as they took in the fresh air. It was nice.
