I started a new series on my blog where I sew a garment inspired by an old family photo of my mum, aunt and grandma. This blouse was inspired by a dress my aunt wore, so I took the peter pan collar and the dots and translated them into a contemporary blouse.

Read more about the project on my blog where I also explain, how to sew a concealed button panel.

      Danke dir vielmals, sie ist wirklich ein lieblingsstück geworden. leider macht der polyester das tragen riskant; auf einer party letztens hat sie ein brandloch von einer zigarette abbekommen…

      I’ve seen the double collar feature on a few (expensive) vintage blouses and really liked it, so I recreated it.
