Little Miss Marple Blouse

My journey to work the other day got quite intriguing…maybe because I was wearing my new Little Miss Marple Blouse. This is the last project before the summer break at my pattern drafting course.

Il mio viaggio in ufficio l’altro giorno si è rivelato molto intrigante… forse perché indossavo la nuova camicia della Piccola Miss Marple. E’ l’ultimo progetto del corso di cucito prima della pausa estiva.

As I was sitting on the ferry, I saw one of the sailors (the Italian slang word in this area is “batelott” from “battello”, ferry)
Seduta sul traghetto, ho visto uno dei “batelott” (slang per “marinaio del traghetto”)

In my morning halfway sleepy and preppy look I started pondering what to do…I thought What would Miss Marple do? (this blouse really reminds me of her)
Con il mio aspetto assonnato e degno di un collegio svizzero, ho cominciato a pensare cosa fare… Mi dicevo, Cosa farebbe Miss Marple? (questa camicia mi fa venire in mente proprio lei)

Then my mind drifted away to taking some pictures of the neckline to share with you.
Poi la mia mente ha vagato via e mi sono messa a fare foto della scollatura per farvela vedere.

Then, the matching lines on the blouse that have caused me so much headaches. Thanks Tasia for another great tutorial.
E poi, le righe allineate che mi hanno fatto venire un bel mal di testa. Grazie Tasia per le fantastiche spiegazioni.

Finally, I got my act together and dared…
Finalmente, ho preso il coraggio a quattro mani e…

Asked for a picture with the guy! Thankfully he was very cool about it and didn’t mind ending up on the web. I don’t think sailors are into sewing… I hope so!
Ho chiesto di fare una foto con il tipo! Per fortuna è stato molto simpatico e non si è fatto problemi a far publicare la foto sul web. Non credo che i marinai si interessino di cucito…o almeno spero!

How is your summer sewing going so far? I have a busy time sewing for the family, for once!
Come va il vostro cucito estivo? Io sono indaffarata a cucire per la famiglia, per una volta!

Have a great week!
Buona settimana!

  1. Hehe, love the pic with the sailor! Miss Marple is one of my all time favorite fiction characters, and I used to watch the movies – mostly the ones with Margaret Rutherford – with my great-grandma late at night when I couldn’t sleep. Happy times – I’ve been thinking a lot about her, lately…
    BTW, that’s some pretty awesome pattern matching!

  2. The neckline is so nice, as is the fact that sailor agreed to pose – very daring of you indeed! I must confess that I really like these little stories you tell with your pictures on your blog posts. And what are you sewing for the family?
