Description

I got this pattern from the Burdastyle magazine US edition. Its the keyhole button blouse pattern which I’ve made before. I wanted to recycle a crinkled cotton broomstick skirt. I’m glad I did. This is a great pattern for using up odds and end from the scraps pile.

I left out the pockets and the sleeves – it made for a quick sew.

Material Notes

Boucle for the bodice, Acetate for the lining & a broomstick skirt for the skirt section. Left over ribbon from Christmas for the rose pin instead of a button.

      It’s such a comfortable style because it’s too hot to wear a belt.

      It’s really easy to make & it was fun. I plan to give this to a friend as a gift.

      Rita it’s a good style in the heat. As soon as I get home I put on loose dresses. This is for my house guest next week.
