last week I finally had some time to replace my lost blouse (don’t ask me where it went. I lost it during the move which probably means I accidentally threw it in the “donate”-clothing pile 🙁 ) and this is the result!
Simple white batist (I think it’s rayon in english? ), some sort of thin cotton for blouses and summer dresses, buttons from my stash aaaaand some spit I guess? ;’D
The skirt is also made by me.
If you’d like to sew this blouse as well, keep in mind that the collar doesn’t exactly fit. You either have to stuff all the width into the neckhole, which is possible, I tried, or you simply have to sew the collar a little shorter. Both works and to be honest, sewing the collar shorter is a lot easier and doesn’t mess up the overall look.
Now to the part where I need your help.
I used the same blouse pattern to make this dress. At first it went all smooth until I realised I forgot the piping to break up the pattern. The pattern itself is very overwhelming so I need some tipps what would help to break up the pattern. I thought about french pockets on the bust, some belt loops and cuffs (which aren’t attached yet as you can see) in the blue color of the fabric. Also matching buttons and I would use the blue fabric (which I have yet to purchase) to make a belt.
Any other ideas? I’m open for every suggestion!
Also, sorry for the lack of a nice hairdo. It’s saturday and I can’t be bothered as I feel a little sick.
