This post is about a muslin I have made for a vintage blouse. The pattern came from ebay. And I think the ladies look rather stylish, don’t you?!
I’ve made my muslin from a rather thin old sheet, as I wanted to test the fit and style before cutting into good fabric.
I think the sleeves are rather snazzy – a real statement. They remind me of the Tilly and the Buttons Matilde blouse that is everwhere in the sewing blogosphere (can’t see how to do a link on here, but it’s easy to find).
The exposed zip is another key feature that I feel marks the make out as retro. I really like it (it’s only my second zip so I’m rather proud of it).
It’s rather snug; I’m thinking if I do make this in good fabric I will maybe add a bit of width on either side. Would you continue on to make the finished item?
