I’ve been completely obsessed with matching twin sets in boldly busy patterns. I really wanted cigarette pants to go with this vintage blouse but didn’t have enough fabric so I patterned a very simple (and short!) dirndl skirt with waistband and invisible side zipper closure. The blouse has crazy big mutton sleeves and is fitted with princess seams. Instead of buttons, I decided to try and a clean, finished front and hand sewed hooks and eyes. I made the collar/bow much narrower than the pattern called for in an attempt to modernize the finished look, which I think ended up a little like an ode to Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel meets prairie Americana. I really love it and am excited to wear it with chunky ankle boots for Fall.
