Alien queen blouse

Yay! I’ve finally finished my first vintage sewing project – Simplicity 4255, from 1953, in green poly-cotton lawn. It took me about three million years but I got there in the end, only to be told by my loving boyfriend that I looked like “an alien queen … in a good way”. More pics and an outline of the labour involved on my blog :)

    How could alien queen be anything other than good? Gorgeous colour and I love the combination of the soft bow and then geometric cuffs.

    Generally I am not a fan of the wrap around garments, however it works so well with this blouse. You chose a great colour. The collar and sleeves really compliment each other. Love it! A fantastic effort!

    I absolutely adore this top! And I love the color that you’ve picked for it. It reminds me so much of a certain top worn by one of my favorite characters in the movie Chocolat! Oh gosh, I really want this! Right into the favorites with you!

    That’s excellent. Really feminine and flattering – I like the alien thing. It’s like a Jetsons age blouse :o)
