So after seeing lauramae’s version of this Simplicity 2154, Retro 1960 blouse, i immediantly hoped on ebay and snatched myself up a copy __
Who can resist that bow and 1960’s style? Too cute.
I didnt make any pattern adjustments, after I cut it i had this…..‘owwwww’ moment when i realised that it just hadn’t even stopped and thought that a 1960’s pattern might fit me horrendously! But, super lucky me, it really fit quite well for something that I gave no fitting thought too.
When I make it again (because how could i not, it took one evening and is too cute) I will add some back width and maybe pivot a bit out at the CF as i get a bit of gaping there which is hidden by the bow. And id maybe make it in a size bigger.
I used a vintage zip, and some pretty cotton quilting fabric that i had bought on sale. I interfaced one side of the bow because i thought it would be too floopy otherwise, but i think either way it wouldnt matter.
Anywho all in all a fun, quick and easy project!
Oh and so annoying on the zip photo. WHATS THAT THREAD DOING. ruined my photo haha
Cotton fabric, zipper, self made bias binding and bow made from old sheet, interfacing.
