Simplicity 2154, Retro 1960s:Misses’/Miss Petite Blouse, Skirt, Jacket and Knit Cardigan. Vogue 1160 (used for sleeves)
The moment I saw this pattern, I knew I wanted to make up the blouse. In my quest for the perfect top, this looked like it might be just the ticket!
Obviously, I made a substantial change to this blouse – I added sleeves. I am absolutely in love with the sleeves from Vogue 1160. I knew as soon as I completed the DKNY dress that those sleeves would come in handy, and now seemed like the perfect opportunity to make some use of them.
Because I did not wish to use a zipper, I tried cutting my pieces on the bias to give myself a bit of extra room to slide in and out of the top. And it worked beautifully!
I am certain that I will be using this pattern again, and I would highly recommend it (along with that DKNY pattern, if only for the sleeves).
