    Hi all friends,

    After long time posting in this section.

    Following are the latest blouses I stitched for my brother's wife, who came here on vacation last month, for the occasion of her cousin brother's wedding. She couldn't find a tailor who will stitch a designer blouse and give it on time. With much hesitation she asked me as she didn't want to disturb me.

    This onion pink blouse sleeves are adopted from Vani mam's instruction of petal sleeves.Thank you Vani mam. So for back neck also I applied the same pattern. Stitched lace with chamkis at the edges. Attached few hangings in sleeves and back.

    In this brown blouse it is simple neck pattern. Stitched lace with gold color beads, pasted motifs and stitched it at the back as well as in sleeves.

    Actually there was not enough breadth of cloth for sleeves. so I was breaking my head to avoid attaching extra cloth underneath (where we join both sides of the sleeves, i.e. under the arms). Finally this idea flashed. Cut the sleeves into two halves lengthwise. Made long strip of cloth by joining 3 strips or 2.5 inches wide. Made fan fold, stitched both edges and attached both side of the sleeves, placing the strip at the center. Then cut the sleeves with paper pattern of exact measurement and later attached lining cloth. On the fan fold pasted motifs and later hand stitched it.

    Sorry for having not ironed the blouse before taking the picture.

    The main part of the episode is I stitched both blouses in three days time. That is record time for me. Other wise I will be thinking thinking for the pattern itself for a week.

    What I cherished is I got special phone call from bro's wife to tell me that all were in praise of her blouse at the marriage hall.

    What I missed is seeing her wearing those blouses.

    Regards
