San Francisco Ba...
Earlier this year, I bought a button-up dress with a ruffle running down the collar from Urban Outfitters. I sometimes wear it to work tucked into my jeans, but ever since I bought it I have wanted to make a similar design as a blouse. This Vogue pattern, on the other hand, kept popping up in my blog: first as a print inspiration and then, as I connected the dots, in my shopping cart during the McCall’s pattern sale. Finally, I put two and two together and finished this work blouse.
Note to self: department store clothes have a way more streamlined construction than Vogue Patterns—those suckers take forever to put all the parts together. Time to start pattern making I guess.
