monochrome blouse – create

The spring blouse has been aptly renamed the ‘monochrome blouse’. Although this is being sewn in our New Zealand spring time, the color palette has a monochromatic feel. It is taking shape – the fabric is cut and the interfacing is ironed on. I think it will be an interesting sew. At this point I’m still undecided about the type of button to choose – contrasting? clear? something else?

This blouse will be part of my work wardrobe. In the not too distant future, I’ll be making a 4 piece work suit consisting of a fitted, lined jacket with matching A line skirt, a pair of culottes and a pair of wide leg trousers. All made up in a black light weight gaberdine.

Why make so many pieces in dark, sombre black? where is the colour? Well… I like wearing blacks and greys. However, I will be introducing a pop of colour with a bright graphic floral print blouse.
