Its been a week since I last posted! We took last week off since my work had a shut down. What did we do? We spent the whole week breaking up concrete in our back patio! Its some back breaking work (for my husband), but I think I have toned my arm muscles nicely from lifting all those concrete pieces and carrying them to our truck in a whiny wheel barrel. 3 trips to the dumps already, probably 5 more to go… *sigh* … the joys of being a house slave.
Of course, I still did sew… unsuccessfully. For some reason I thought this funky patterned rayon would look good as a slightly baggy dress… 😦 And I tried to make a top using a self drafted pattern, from SILK! 😦 x2. oh wells… To make myself feel better…
Here is a giveaway! My purple silk blouse! I think I made this last year. I love the silky material, but I didnt really like such a big ruffle in the front, it made me look nice in the photos, but in person its just a little… ridiculous. Regardless I had worn it out a few times, because I loved how it feels! Anyway, I am sure someone out here would like this style.
Strict chest size requirement: you must be 32 or smaller! This blouse is a little too small up there for me, another reason I dont like wearing it, the ruffle just bounce around too much and the center slit opens up too much.
Okie Dokie, just the usual deal, leave a message here conveying how much you want this, and I will pick a random reader!

Did you try the jackhammer? I heard all that vibration is supposed to give you ahem, all the pleasure in the world =)
I’m talking about a massage, you guys. What were you thinking?!
lol! you are so funny km 🙂 i never laid my hand on the jackhammer though — D did all the pleasurable work 😉
actually, its pretty bad for your hands (carpal tunnel if you use it too much!) D wanted to try using one anyway — this one is a smaller one comparing to the standard size, so not as bad!
I would love to win because
1. YOU have inspired me to start my own sewing blog…soon…very soon….
2. I am also petite. like really.
3. I love a good ruffle.
4. When I start my blog it will be in English AND Japananese and I promise to wear the blouse in my very first post!
Did I convince you?
Teeny girls of the world unite!!!!!!
haha you are too cute! let me see if i can tell my random generator to pick you! 🙂
It’s a beautiful blouse. Me please! I love silk and ruffles, plus I have a small chest 🙂 I’m new to your blog and find it inspiring! I’ve been sewing for about a two years now, still a novice.
Your blog is great – you make such beautiful clothes! I would love this blouse–just to clarify (in case I don’t win!) did you use a pattern for this top? Because if I don’t get it I’d love to try to make one =)! Thanks!
aww thanks! i did use a pattern for this! its from the burda magazine, burda 8/2009 dress#117 🙂 i hope you will make one if you didnt get the random #!
Hi! I found you via The Selfish Seamstress and I LOVED the dresses of yours that she showed us! I’m glad you have your own blog, and I’m adding you to my feed reader 🙂
I don’t sew, but I do knit, and love to geek out over garment construction for little people. I wish I had the ability to make the great warm-weather casual clothes you do! (Not much call for wool in the summer, though I’m knitting a cashmere-blend capelet to wear over sleeveless dress… I am thinking of paying someone to make me the Coffee Date Dress — perhaps someone I could trade a knit item with!)
I am about your size and would like to win the shirt if I should happen to be so lucky. I like ruffles on shirts! And that one is a good scale that doesn’t overwhelm people our size — at least, I think it looks lovely on you!
Thanks for sharing your work with us! Looking forward to keeping on reading. 🙂
aww, welcome to my blog! hmm! perhaps you would be willing to trade your skill with a seamstress (you knit them a sweater, they make you a dress). i think i should press that random generator now!
okie dokie! random # says 5, which means megu gets it! (no tricking needed!) 🙂 thanks girls for participating! i will have more coming later! 🙂
Love the color, detailing, and design… very good for masking a small chest, like mine!
Wow I’m so excitedddd!!!
