Leafy Green Pendrell

This was another project that I cut out for SewAway back in June, but unlike a lot of the other garments from that weekend, I didn't end up sewing this one then, and finally got around to sewing it together in the last few weeks.

This is my 4th Pendrell blouse, and the third in chiffon using just the outer ruffles as cap sleeves from view B (you can see the first three here). As with the previous versions, I french seamed the blouse throughout, and used a self bias binding around the neck and armholes as per the pattern. I love how polished this gives the finish, not a raw edge to be found!

The fabric is a poly chiffon, I think I got it from spotlight ages ago, and always intended to make a blouse from it, most likely a Pendrell.

This make was nice and simple, no alterations to the pattern since the last times I'd made it, I just focused on working through the construction steps and before I knew it, it was done!

This is already a staple in my work wardrobe.


  1. This looks so elegant on you! Great fabric choice. I can definitely see this as a great option for work. :)

  2. This is a beautiful blouse! I need something like this for work, too.

  3. Your blouse is beautiful. Sewing with chiffon scares the hell out of me, but seeing how nice it looks on you makes me want to try one day.

  4. Such a pretty blouse. I was given a piece of this fabric in the other colour way - it is remarkably stable to sew for a chiffon.


Comments make me smile :)
