A 40s Trio

Hi all, I want to share my latest sewing project with you. I wanted to make a completely me made outfit and here’s the result.

I have blogged about this blouse before, but it’s form a 40s pattern and has lots op pin tucks and lace insertions. I think the details really makes this blouse more interesting.

The plaided skirt I drafted myself some years ago, but I had some difficulties with the zipper and as a result the skirt disappeared in the UFO pile. It took some years to take it up again and finish it. But now I’m really glad that it’s finished. I really wanted a classic plaid skirt for a very long time and now I finally have one!

I crocheted the purse. Since the pattern description was pretty vague it was quite a challenge. I added very heay interfacing so the purse contains its shape.

There is more on my blog!
