Mama's Gonna Buy You A Mockingbird Refashioned Frock

I found this blouse at a new thrift shop in town. I can’t help myself. I go weak at the knees for embroidery. The blouse was a little too short and I didn’t know what to wear it with. But it was only $1 so I thought I might try to use it for a bit of refashioning.

Brian was in Philadelphia attending his sister’s Graduation so I had my mother take the photos. I guess it’s suiting.

It’s a fairly easy tutorial. But if you too have a blouse that you just can’t part with but just can’t wear try turning it into a lovely summer frock!
