Tula Pink Painted Portrait Blouse

After already making a sleeveless blouse and dress from the Anna Maria Horner Painted Portrait Blouse/Dress pattern, I really wanted to try it again but this time with sleeves...
I chose some prints from Tula Pink True Colours and Eden that coordinated with the dark denim Tencil that I was using for the main part of the blouse.
I used some of the Crouching Tiger print in Amethyst from Eden to feature on the back of the blouse.
This time I did a pieced yoke which was quite easy to do and I used some of the pink lawn leftover from sewing the other blouse for the facing.
The last step was to sew the hems - although I did feel like I was being watched very closely by the tiger...
The front and back....
I wore the blouse to Tulas trunk show and Tula was kind enough to have a photo taken with me wearing it which made my day:)

  2. Super sweet and love the photo with Tula! ;-)

  3. You are so scary from the back! Lovely photo and a great way to celebrate your finish. Thank you for participating in the 2016FAL, on behalf of all the hosts!
