I recently used one of Vera Venus wonderful vintage inspired, free patterns again, this time the Keyhole Neck Blouse. I made it specifically to fit a vintage circle skirt that my boyfriend gave me 2 years ago and that I rarely wore because I had no matching top for it. I searched for the perfect blue in various fabric stores and finally found the right color. I really like Kimono sleeves and adore the three keyhole cutouts. I was a bit scared of sewing those but they were actually quite easy to make. I made the waist slightly smaller and lengthened the waist darts but apart from that I changed nothing. In order to fit my rather large head through the neck opening I didn’t close the back seam completely and attached a hook and eye closure. I was quite unsure of how to do this properly and even though it looks nice I will definitely consult a tutorial next time I attempt this. My friend came up with the idea to use some white lace on the neckline and sleeves and I really happy that both colors now have their counterparts in skirt and top. We made some pictures of the ensemble on a glorious spring evening some weeks ago, I love this time of the year so much and am very happy that it’s finally time for short sleeved tops again :-)

    Very pretty! I love how you put your individuality on to the patterns and make them your own.
