"A Blouse Named Beautiful" Acts 3:2

Baltimore, Maryl...






I made this blouse for week 2 of my fall makeover challenge. I used the new fall Mccalls pattern 6604. When I saw the pattern I new I wanted a cream blouse similar to the one the model was wearing on the package cover and was delighted when I found a pair of cream lace curtains and polyester pajama pants at the thrift store to use as the fabric for my blouse (it had to be God because I found both on the same day and at a great price total was $7). I was able to use the beautiful lace scalloping at the bottom of the curtain for my blouse hem and the curtain rod pocket for the cuffs. I used the pajama pants for the sleeves. For the inspiration behind this piece check out my blog at
For some reason some of my shots are still uploading as tilted images even though I keep re-orienting them before I save them. Sorry :)
