After summing up 2011 and realizing how many dresses I made (and how many times they were used…) I decided that 2012 will be a year of more separates. Thus, sewing project no.1 was a blouse. To keep it simple after all my advanced dress sewing for the holidays, I drafted a simple peasant blouse. Here’s how it came out!



I based my drafting mainly on these lovely pattern envelopes, McCall 6625 from 1946, and Advance 5856 (year unknown).

This is pretty – it looks great with your hair. You just need a little chain of daisys and you’re all set :D
