A follow up to my hankie dress: a blouse! It’s a loose, pullover-style made with 8 different vintage hankies in the same aqua/pink colorway. I used Simplicity’s Built By Wendy pattern #3835 (out of print I believe). I simply pieced together hankies using the pattern pieces as a guide and cut off the extra bits. Vintage rayon seam binding for the tie at the neckline.

Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
