Sewaholic Oakridge Take 2



 After my success with version one of this top, I was keen to make this pattern up again.  I had a recent acquisition of poly chiffon from the op shop, in my stash that I knew would make up nicely into this style based on my previous experience.  With my trusty gelatin waiting in my pantry for such a project, I set to.




I made no changes to the pattern other than to shorten the sleeves, although on completion, I realised I could have actually removed more.  

Like my previous version, all seams except the arm hole are French seamed for durability.





The buttons on this blouse I am particularly pleased with.  I was a little annoyed that I had no suitable candidates in my stash but you can't win them all.  So, a trip to Fabric Vision ensued.  I was pleased to find these at a reasonable $0.30 each.  They change colour from lavender to beige in different light.



The verdict....I am as happy with this top as its predecessor and there will be more but possibly I am done with this view, for now anyway!







I can't believe it has been a year already.  I wasn't going to sign up this year but I have found it useful for reference after the fact, so here goes.......
