This is the first thing I have sewn for myself in many years. It feels so good to wear my new blouse! I bought this fabric long ago at a thrift store, the buttons were cut from one of my husband’s old shirts. The time investment was huge, as I took great pains to match the plaid.

Material Notes

New Look 6010, Cotton/ Synthetic blend

      Thank you, I had saved this fabric in my secret box for many years. This pic has a bit of a ‘fun house’ wobble to it :)
