Blouse: Sencha, handmade fail
Pants: jeans, hand me down from my mom
When I’m too lazy to set my hair the night before, I default to some kind of classic look.
I’m on the verge of retiring this Sencha, and now I know why.
I made this a year or so ago out of polyester charmeuse. I was still new to sewing then and didn’t realize that quality fabrics were not polyester. Today it’s 80 degrees and very humid outside, and the material was not helping.
As for modifications, I cut the neckline a lot lower and made covered buttons. I finished the sides with French seams and learned how to work with a very slippery fabric. I also raised the darts by a good inch or so.
This version also needs about four inches added to the length. To remedy this I put a black chiffon top underneath it so I wouldn’t be tugging at it all day long.
I wore this to work today and I was mostly fine, until I had a meeting with our other devs and I was really self-conscious. It also rides up a lot because it’s so short.
Verdict: Definite Sencha fail. Definite charity donation.
