Felicity helps with the Selina Blouse

It’s been too long since I did a Felicity post.  I don’t want to turn into the kind of blogger-becomes-patternmaker who only blogs about their patterns.  But… all my cute recent photos of Felicity are of her getting involved with making the Selina Blouse pattern and samples! So I hope you’ll forgive another Selina post, as long as it involved Felicity adorableness. Felicity helped with every bit of the Selina Blouse. She had her paw in on the initial pattern development: And applied her expertise to choosing fabric for the pattern samples, and making the models comfortable: I only lie on the highest quality fabrics And making sure I took cuddle breaks: Then she helped keep my blood pressure nice and elevated by sleeping on the in-progress samples whenever they were full of pins. Not stabby enough… Ah, perfect… I guess she likes to live dangerously even while she sleeps! She also agreed to sleep on non-pinny things, as long as it caused maximum inconvenience: Oh, were you cutting here? Or sewing these? On this? …

The Selina Blouse: the tester makes Part II: historical

Get ready for even more Selina Blouse tester makes gorgeousness! Here’s Part 2 of the tester makes.  Today’s makes are all the historical makes.  By random coincidence they are also almost all in classic white.  So it’s a round up post showing how different the Selina can look in a dozen different white fabrics (and a couple of florals and spots)! In Part 1 I showed all the testers who styled their Selina for modern or historybounding wear. Now for the historical fabulosity! Jaya of @jayagracecostumes Jaya’s photos have the most wonderful, dreamy, Anne of Green Gables feel. Her Selina is a great example of how well the blouse works in a lighter fabric with more drape – and how well it works tucked in. Jaya made View A in Size 36, graded down to a Size 34 in the peplum.   Check out her instagram to see all her other beautiful makes. Sally Sally made View B for her classic white Selina.  Her take on it is equally beautiful.  How perfect is that fit!? …

The Selina Blouse: the tester makes Part I: modern & historybounding!

What time is it?  Tester makes time! It’s the best part of pattern releases: where you get to see how a bunch of fabulous sewers interpreted the pattern. Testers help make a pattern perfect, by pointing out any bits in the instructions that are a bit confusing, and by helping me refine the fit so it works as well as possible on as many bodies as possible. I mentioned that there were a lot of exciting Selina Blouse tester makes, and I am not kidding!  In fact, there’s so many makes that I’m going to be doing two tester posts. Here’s the first one: all the testers who styled their Selina Blouses with modern clothes or as historybounding. Here are the tester makes! Gaëlle of @supergaelle I’m in love with the fun floral print that Gaëlle used on her Selina Blouse, and the way she highlighted the collar and placket detailing with trim. Her photos are a great example of how fabulous the blouse looks with trousers.  Am I going to copy this look in …
