40s Button Up Blouse

Added Dec 7, 2012

South, Israel






I was inspired by a dress Amy Adams wore in the movie Mrs. Pettigrew Lives For a Day. It has such a nice unique vintage flair to it, I’ve never see this collar on a modern garment. I decided to make it into a shirt because I felt that I would get more wear out of it and boy was I right! I’ve already worn it at least 5 times!
I used this cotton poly blend that took well to pressing but doesn’t wrinkle (does a better fabric exist?)
For pictures of my inspiration and more information on the construction of the collar you can visit my blog
