This month for my Go To Patterns Brand Ambassador pattern, I chose the


I used a lovely voile from Canadian National Fabric.
It was a bit of a bigger print than I had expected but I still love it.
It's the first time I've sewn with voile and it sews up really well.

I found the pattern to run a little boxy around the natural waist, which may be intended with the blouse-y look. But, I made a small mod and did three short rows of shirring to pull it in a little.

I also left off the optional pocket as I thought this print was busy enough without a pocket.

The rolled up sleeves are really comfy--I haven't worn them unrolled yet! 


And, I braved the cold (-15 Celsius) to get my husband to take a couple of pictures.
This from the lady (me) who is always cold and does not enjoy cold very much. In fact, my husband looked at me rather incredulously when I suggested it.
I'm glad we did go with the outside pictures--the snow makes a lovely backdrop.
