It’s time for another blouse made from the new Palos Verdes collection from Cloud9. We love seeing lots of the organic voile prints made up into beautiful blouses in our Palos Verdes Blouse Challenge! Search #palosverdesblouse in social media to see more of the fabric and blouses from our challengers.

Here are links to blouses by Teresa, Charise and Carolina. Today we have Nienke de Jong-de Vries of Pienkel.

This was the first blouse Nienke has ever sewn for herself! She used the Weekend Getaway pattern by Liesl + Co. and writes, “The shape of the blouse is perfect for the thin fabric… I had never sewn with voile before, but it wasn’t nearly as hard as I had imagined. It is thin and drapes well, but [it’s] not slippery…”

See more photos from Nienke at Pienkel, and be sure to spend some time browsing through her posts for lots of lovely sewing and beautiful glimpses of life on the Dutch island of Terschelling.
