Separates are Awesome!

July 27, 2013

I love separates! But pretty dresses often distract me…… Today I’ve been good and worn two new me-made separates.

The blouse is Butterick 7641 c. 1958. And the shorts are Wearing History’s WWII Overalls pattern.

I love the little tab details on this blouse! They give it a bit of a western feel.

And I’m so loving these shorts this summer! It’s hard for me to find shorts that fit well since I’m so curvy. Even repro companies often are not curvy enough. I’m so happy that I finally conquered my fear of denim because it’s really not that bad!

More photos and construction details over on the blog.

  1. That tab detail is super cute! Hurrah for great shorts. I’ve been having so much fun with my dresses I’ve avoided making myself some so far this summer…

  2. I love the details on that shirt! And those shorts are really nice too.
    I think shorts can be great on a lot of figures but they have to be well fitted and in a style that suits one’s shape. These look great.
