I posted a while back about a 1950s style patio skirt I made and I finally got around to making the matching blouse to go with it!
I used Butterick 7328 for the blouse and added ric rac trim to match the skirt.
I did a circle of red, then gold, the red again ric rac around the blouse following the line of the yoke. I also added some red ric rac to the collar. I wish I had had some of the black trim from the skirt leftover, but it was vintage and I only had enough to go around the skirt twice.
Overall, I’m very happy with the project! I never need an excuse to wear ridiculous amounts of ric rac!
