Beach Glass Margo Blouse


I made a Margo Blouse this week I’d like to quickly share with you.  I’m in desperate need of some solids in my wardrobe and because I like pretty much all shades of blue (you probably guessed that since my pattern line is called Blue Dot), I thought this “beach glass” colored linen would make a perfect wardrobe addition.

I made View B with no alterations and added etched shell buttons from my stash.  I’ve made quite a few Margos, as you can imagine, and next I’d like to make a sleeveless white one for the summer.

On a completely different note...guess what I just found out?  My 16 year old son can take pictures.  I talked him into taking these pics for me and it turns out he’s pretty good.  It was a different experience than my usual photo shoot when I typically take 10+ pics in the same pose and come back with a ridiculous amount of photos that take forever to sort through.  My son took one pic of each pose and said “I got it, do something else.”  Guys can really make things a whole lot simpler.  He’s going to wish he wasn’t so good because I’m going to ask him again.  For sure I’ll have to bribe him with a milkshake next time.

    1. Thank you! I know you use a lot of blue too. I wasn't able to leave a comment on your blog but I purchased the Simply Sewn book too (you made the capris). I'm going to try the spaghetti strap dress.

  3. That's a lovely top and lovely colour to boot. That's great you've got a photographer to help you out. I haven't been able to lure mine to do the same yet!
