Finish It Up Friday: Datura Blouse

This was one of those weeks were I was hopeful and positive that I would get a lot done.  I should know better at this point, that most things don't work out as expected!  I did not get too much done this week, but perhaps the weekend will be different.  I did manage to get my Datura blouse that I have been working on mostly done.  I still need to decide on buttons and I believe I am going to hand stitch the hem, but for the most part it is finished.  I think I am going to write a review of the Deer and Doe pattern for the Datura blouse, but that will come a little later.  Below is what I have so far, what do you think?

I used Kaufman Essex yarn dyed linen in flax for the yoke and The Way of Flowers from the Koi Collection by Rashida Coleman-Hale for the bottom.  Both of these are two of my favorites!  I really love this print.  The colors are wonderful and I love the little dragonflies scattered about.
Today's post is going to be short because it is my husband and my anniversary today, plus we are trying to get ready for a 13 year old's birthday party...this should be interesting. I love how I didn't realize what date it was when I said yes to the party....ooops.  Anyway, I am going to try and have a big finish next week, wish me luck!  Until then have fun creating!
