dear me, it´s been a long time since my last post…but that´s about to change.
My vintage and vintage-inspired wardrobe is going to take shape over the course of this year, yeah.
A first is my new blouse, Butterick 6217, designed by Gretchen Hirsch.
I love the cute bow over the chest, especially as I am an A-cup gal, so this pattern was in my stash quite soon after it came out. It took me a while to really get to sew it up, but the result is really nice.
The sizing of the pattern proved to be a problem though. I cut exactly after the measurements stated on the envelop, but the result was a bodice much too big for my frame. Funny as it may seem, the armholes were too narrow, even on the bigger bodice!
So I cut it out again two sizes smaller, lowered the armhole about an inch and lengthened the bodice about two inches.
Now I´m quite happy with the result and there´s the idea of a second version in white already in my head…
Feel free to check my blog for more information.
Cheers and hopefully sooner than the last time.
