The Ingrid Blouse

Added Nov 8, 2009

Suburbia, Illino...






This is the reprinted Simplicity 3688 pattern, a fancyish top from the 1940’s. I must say it was a wonderful pattern. Simple, clean, and easy, thank goodness. Kinda bookwormy in design is the long sleeves and high collar, so I took in the pleats to make it a teensy bit sexy, and the closure in the back is like a little secret flash of skin. The satin is the Casa satin from Joann’s, and it’s positively a dream, minus the fraying. Oh yeah, I met Olympic gold medalist Dan Jansen in it, too!

Material Notes

Casa Satin, pearl button




Garment Type
Classic, Vintage

    I love it. I love the color and fabric. Though I usually stay away from artificial fabrics, Seeing your creation I see I have a reason not to. The color is wonderful and the design is so feminine and unique. Refreshing.

    I love the way you retouched this blouse, and the color is just marvelous. Also: major hair envy.
