The New York Blouse

Added Nov 16, 2011

by daughterfish

Brooklyn, New Yo...






I made this blouse as a variation of my Bias-Cut Summer Shift that I made last spring.

Not sure I like it in black, but I think it works as a first try.

    Oh! and good luck for your job interviews! Casual elegance always strike cords-at least in my world: I am never going to be an employer :)

      My favorite employers have always been casually elegant, so there is hope!:)

      There will always be match made in heavens, bosses and employees ‘fitting’ each other well. Ah, I wonder if some nutcase economist/anthropologist ever thought of the working environment as some kind of wardrobe concept…sigh

    Aaaah, I so like your Bias Cut Summer Shift!

    Of course I fell head over heels with this shirt too… very nice! Simple but stylish.

    I want your pattern, please can I have your pattern ;-)?

    Update: I just ordered the pattern, Simplicity, I plan to be a copy cat…. :-)

      Ha! Yes. But I have to figure out how to make it into a pdf first. This will give me a good excuse to finally learn illustrator. How about you be one of my testers? I’ll let you know when I get it done!

      Aaah, great! Then I can compare it to my version in case I’ve already made one, but knowing me there are many things to be made in between! So your pdf might come first. I think we’re the same size too…!

      I would love to see your translation of this! I do, however, think you are probably smaller than me!:)
