Pendrell Love!

The first Pendrell is finished! The fabric was a little fiddly, as all silky drapey fabrics can be, but the pattern is very well drafted and the instructions are very clear. I finished the seams with the serger and I think the next one I will use the 5 thread serger stitch to do the majority of seams.
I can see making this many more times. It sews up quick and the sleeveless version will be very versatile to wear under jackets. I have some aprons to finish up and then it's on to the Mondo dress!

Mary! It's fabulous, I love it! You know I like my bright blues :)
I'm so glad the pattern was easy to work with, that is fantastic to hear!
Have a good evening!

Cute blouse! I love the pouffy sleeves. And, it could easily be lengthened into a dress!

I love how your sleeves puff! I wouldn't have thought they would in such silky fabric. It's lovely!

Great idea Gwen! I'll have to go scan the closet for an appropriate dress fabric!

Gorgeous! I love the bright blue fabric--festive for the season without being obvious in red and green.

Beautiful! The sleeves are so nice. I plan to make all versions of the Pendrell myself.
Great job!
