Gertie's Portrait Blouse: Betsey Johnson Knit Edition

Dear readers,

I've made a second version of Gertie's Portrait Blouse (from New Book of Better Sewing (NBBS) and then memorialized the event by taking (silly) pictures.  First -  the sad news, Betsey Johnson is closing her retail stores as of this last summer. The good news, her fabric went to Mood and I benefitted from this sad event.   Hopefully, she'll be onto something even better!

 Another knit portrait blouse from Gertie's collection of patterns, blogged about in my last entry.  Super comfortable, fun to make and easy!  I might actually make one or two more:)

Here is the blouse on, as I am photobombed by Paddy below:
Another silly picture:

The sales person at Mood told me this fabric came from her closing retail stores. . . and I have found other butterfly like patterns in her collection from this year:

Very similar looking!  Betsey bring on your next round of shocking, silly, pink and wonderful - we're waiting for your next line!

My next projects are JStern's Khaki pants (in black denim), Sailor Pants from Hot Patterns (in Denim), and I think the Anise Jacket from Colette in Green Wool.


  1. Love the butterflies, and you are so productive! I'm jealous of your mojo.

  2. Sister, I wish I had your long term mojo!! I think I'm just avoiding cleaning!

  3. Gorgeous fabric... and I don't usually like her stuff. I'm more of a Vivienne Westwood fan!

  4. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
