I have already made this blouse once before. A long time before, actually. Like several decades ago. It’s a pretty simple pattern to make, and shouldn’t take long at all. An afternoon. I’m looking forward to beginning!
I think this pattern might be perfect as my first project to start with, now that I’m dressmaking again. It’s a Very Easy Vogue number, should be quick and easy. By the way, can you see how old this pattern is? The phone number for Spotlight stamped on the front doesn’t have the “9” that was added in front of our numbers quite a while ago. And see the price on the back? A steep AU$4.50!
Think I’ll make View B, the one with the front pleat. And long-sleeved. I have a gorgeous piece of Liberty Tana Lawn that has been waiting patiently in my cupboard. What do you think?
Hmmm, well as it turns out, not so much in my cupboard, as on the shelf at Amitié. Well, I had to buy it. None of the pieces I had in my cupboard had the yardage I need for the blouse. It’s a design I’ve had my eye on since the newest season Liberty fabrics came out. I just love it. And it’ll go beautifully with my new green knitted long cardigan.
