The Dino Blouse

I’ve made this blouse before (Simplicity 5030), but I’ve had this fabric sitting in my stash for a while before I finally figured out what to do with it. It was always really quite a cool print, but I only had about a yard, maybe a little bit more. At the time, I was mostly making dresses, but that was out of the question. Finally it occurred to me; a blouse – a dinosaur blouse.

Finding the buttons was a bit of trouble (why do they only seem to make one kind of dinosaur buttons?), but I think it ended up turning out well. A flattering Peter Pan collar, sleeves a bit long but that can be fixed.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who waits until a fabric tells them what they want to be
