We made it! Well done to everyone who sewed along and I hope you found the detailed instructions useful.
Here is how my blouse turned out. I'm rather pleased with it!
Laura at Auxetically made a super Bellini which she wore to Oktoberfest! Read more here.
Louise from Not Sew Simple made two Bellinis! A white one and a blue stripy one. They both look stunning! Read more on Laura's blog here.
Sue at Fadanista also made two Bellinis! A peach/apricot version in silk dupion, plus a blue and white stripy version with the fronts cut on the bias to form a chevron. Great work, Sue! Read more about Sue's Bellinis here.
Karine made a beautiful View B Bellini - with the scalloped collar. Read about her project on her blog, Karine la Rouge, here.
And finally... Juanita also made two Bellinis. Since the first was a little tight, she says she's going to wear it open with a vest underneath. The second was a perfect fit, well done Juanita!
Didn't we all do well?! There is some really great work here and I'm delighted that so many beautiful Bellinis are now out there in the wild. Thanks so much to everyone who took part and I hope you found it useful.
Since this is my first time running a sewalong, I'd love to hear your feedback, good or bad. Were the videos useful? Was there too much detail or not enough? What did you think overall? Leave me a comment and let me know what you'd like included or not included next time.
Missed the deadline but would like to show off your finished Bellini? Join my linky party below.
