HP Deneuve Heirloom Shirt – Part IV

Yeah, I thought I’d be done by now too… All I have left are the sleeves and the hem, only a couple of hours’ worth of work. I’ve just been busy doing other things around the house – both mine and Bryan’s. Football season is just around the corner and I won’t have my honey around as much to help me (but more sewing time, yay!) so we’ve been putting the finishing touches on the landscaping. One more palm tree and a few dozen bags of mulch and I’m done! I also finally finished laying the wood floors at Bryan’s house last Saturday which is a huge load off my mind.

Please don’t mind the wrinkles – we must embrace them if we are going to wear linen! I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed making this shirt. Sometimes it’s fun to just lose yourself in a more time-consuming project.

    It looks great Gigi, even if it’s not finished yet. Does this mean that the part of the yard that you can’t see from the pool is done, too?

  2. Irish handkerchief linen to be sure..I’m smitten by this blouse. But then again I’m smitten by everything you make!

    The blouse is looking lovely! Anxious to see it all done. There’s no end to your talents–are you laying laminate or real wood? I’ve done laminate but never tackled wood.

    This is such a beautiful blouse, its hard to go past classic white linen. I love linen, wrinkles and all- and the wrinkles are one way you know for sure what you are looking at is the real deal, not contaminated by synthetic fibres! I cannot wait to see how you finish this off.

  14. The lace-work on the bib is beautiful. I am making this top also, in tunic length. I’m pintucking the bib. I may channel-stitch the neckband, yoke and cuffs. It’s a great pattern.
