Now that I have a working sewing space, I'm itching to get back to sewing. And of course, I want to sew with the pattern (Simplicity 4888) and fabric (kaleidoscope cotton) that Kristin sent me the other day! So I'm combining them. However, I felt like the kalidescope fabric is just too crazy on it's own, so I've picked up some black cotton to create some sort of yoke to incorporate into the blouse. I wasn't sure what kind of design I wanted though, so I traced out the blouse pattern and played a bit:
While I do like versions 1-3, I really liked the mock sweetheart yoke version (4-6), and played around with sleeve and collar colours.
Which design do you like best, 1, 2, 3, or 4? If you like the sweetheart version, which sleeve and collar treatment looks best? I'm also considering using piping, and the colour of the collar will determine whether I use black piping or the coloured print piping.
SO MANY DECISIONS! How do you designers make up your mind?!
