A Long Time Ago, In a Galaxy Far Far Away…

Hello everyone! Long time no post 🙂 I thought I’d pop over here to admire what everyone else has been working on, and to share one of my own recently finished projects. There was an awesome Star Wars themed event at the local aviation museum last weekend and I knew I wanted to combine my love of the 1940’s with the Star Wars theme. Enter some truly great black and gold cotton from Joanns and an idea was born!

I used my favorite (self drafted last spring) kimono sleeve basic blouse pattern and got to work. The blouse buttons up the back and is fitted almost like a dress bodice with 4 darts in the front and two in the back. The edges of the sleeves are simply serged and them turned over with a hand stitched hem and the neckline is finished with a self fabric facing. The blouse only took me half a day to complete, which was good as I made it the night before the event!

  1. Very cool blouse! So glad to hear that I am not the only one who tries to pair vintage and Star Wars. And I really like the fabric, is the print really golden or do I only wish it to be and it is instead yellow?

  2. I love Star Wars Day at the Hanger. I’ve been helping with that for several years! I’ve got a Gertie dress with Star Wars fabric I’ve been working on…it is in my UFO area, and really need to get back to it! For SWDH, I’m normally dressed in pilot orange!
