I hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas Eve! I wanted to pop in and share my recent project – the Simplicity 8789 Bodysuit Blouse. I love that this blouse has an attached panty, making it easy to tuck in without having to deal with bunching or the blouse coming untucked.
I made this blouse specifically to wear for the holidays! I love the mauve color and it makes me feel like the Sugar Plum Fairy. I grew up dancing ballet in the Nutcracker, and the Sugar Plum Fairy is such a beloved role.
This fabric is an amazing Sandwashed Poly Satin from Blackbird Fabrics. I usually don’t sew with polyester, but I made an exception for this really high quality poly. It is so drapey, soft, and luxurious!
I ended up hand sewing a blind hem on the sleeves. I have been really into blind hems lately, because I love how it gives such a seamless and flowy look. I also did a blind hem on my Simplicity 8606 Wrap Skirt and love how it turned out, so that was my gateway to doing all the blind hems!
I’m so excited to attend our family Christmas Eve gathering tonight! I hope you all have a fun Christmas Eve with your loved ones. Merry Christmas!
