Black & Blue Soul

Black and Blue Soul because Alma means soul in Portuguese. I have finished this Sewaholic Alma blouse sometime ago but only today managed to photograph it. I have been sort of out of sorts (if that makes sense) and some things take much longer to do.
I am really happy how this Alma turned out. Shame that the weather is turning too cold and I have to wait till next Spring to wear this again.
I used a very soft cotton-like fabric which is a bit of a nightmare to work with. I decided to go with contrasting black cuffs and collar and love the result. I planned on doing the black belt as well but the fabric was so fiddly I decided to ignore that. I'm happy I did as I botched up on the narrow hem and will not be using this blouse untucked. I love it with some high waisted trousers!
I'm slowly getting back to sewing (and knitting) regularly. Have quite a few projects on the go now. Focusing on getting one ready to wear next Saturday for the great Birmingham Rag Market meet up.
Will try to keep you posted on how it goes!

  2. Lovely soul Suzy ;o) So glad to hear you're slowly getting back into sewing and knitting, it can be so hard to stay motivated sometimes! Can't wait to see you next Saturday!!!

  3. Absolutely lovely - I love the black and blue combo, perfect!

  4. So nice to see a new post from you, and featuring such a beautiful blouse! I love it :)

  5. It's lovely! Could you wear it with a cardigan in the winter? It seems such a shame to put it away until spring. :)

  6. Yay, you are going to Birmingham? Me too!

  7. I know I'm really beanie only just catching up with this, but how wonderful is this version of alma?! I think it's possibly one of y favourites...I love the contrast collar and cuffs and it looks a perfect fit on you. It was so amazing to finally meet you and sorry didn't say goodbye properly...until next time ( and I can't wait to get sewing with the animal print ;-) )

    1. Yes, it was amazing meeting you...finally!! Hope we get to see each other many more times :)
