Batik Blouse

I usually don't sew clothing for myself because I haven't mastered how to make it fit well. However, optimistically, I asked Michele P. to help me with this pattern since it appeared simple - HA! Lots of gathers with batik fabric is a challenge and with the great design in the fabric it hardly even shows the gathers. It came out really pretty (can't go wrong with batiks) but it doesn't fit. Bummer. Maybe I'll look for a different pattern and try again.
Don't forget to comment for the 300th Post Give Away.

I'm sorry that the top doesn't fit because it's so pretty. I have the same problem with patterns, but I have better luck with Vogue patterns for some reason.

It's very pretty! And I understand the frustration! Too bad batiks don't have that much stretch in them, it would have been fine.
