A crisis of confidence?

A bit of a change in direction for me. I have a sneaking feeling that Elsa is less keen on the highly embellished Farbenmix look than I am so I’m trying to tone it down a little. Since I’ve been having a go at some of the Oliver and s patterns I’ve been looking at a lot of different blogs and flickr groups than my usual places and find that I do actually like some of what I see. Now I’m feeling very unsure about where I go from here. What is your preference?

Here’s the latest sewing- A class picnic blouse with added pocket at Elsa’s request and short sleeves. The sleeves were shortened as per instructions from Adelaide Lemonade here. The fabric is a really nice cotton poplin I got from Spotlight. I think it has a really Euro feel to the print. I teamed it with some puppet show shorts made in a cotton/linen mix from Spotlight also. I gained inspiration (very heavily) from the 3 hours past the edge of the world blog here for these. Instead of the usual gather on the pocket I added a pleat and a lace trim.
