I enjoy a simple style and do simple sewing but I love a special detail! I used a simple A-line shape for this blouse and a similar sleeve detail as I used on the cuff of the Good Neighbor dress.
|I added vintage lace to the bottom of the blouse and cotton eyelet to the bottom of the skirt. The skirt fabric came from the feed sack/30's reproduction section of a local quilt store. I added ties to the blouse to help define the shape.|
|Then there are pintucks and vintage buttons.|
|Next to using vintage patterns, vintage notions are my favorite and something I look for at antique and thrift stores.|
|The best part is she likes the outfit and it is one she can wear often this spring and summer.|
Yes, details are like icing on the cake!! Whether it be buttons, hand stitching, applique, ruffles, lace , or whatever is your preference.
p.s. and to make those pin tucks I refashioned a men's tuxedo shirt.When I saw it at the thrift store a couple of months back it had to come home with me :). Refashioning this shirt was fun! I had enough fabric to make the sleeve ruffles and ties but used store bought bias tape around the neckline. Once again there has been some amazing clothing sewn up this week!! Check it out here.
