One thing I have noticed from working with this vintage pattern….they seem to be long on pattern piece markings and short on detailed instruction! I think I just need to get used to the difference in style and language used back in the day, I find myself doing a lot of head scratching but those aha! moments are priceless….
|Don’t laugh, this is my first shoulder pad and it’s not complete!|
This blouse calls for shoulder pads….check out my post on those here. They are actually really fun, even though I am basically winging it! I had no idea shoulder pads were required for this pattern, since there was absolutely no mention of them or the required material on the envelope, anywhere!! I realized the necessity of them half way through cutting out my underlining…lucky I had most everything except for the cotton batting which I went out and bought at my fabric store.
Check out more pics at the link above! If you have any shoulder pad tips or encouragement…let me know!
