Octobre Blouse

Chicago, Illinoi...






This is a top I finished about 2 weeks ago and I hadn’t gotten around to taking photos. This blouse is using the same pattern I made for my Mod Faces top – I just added a peter pan collar. This shirt is made entirely of leftover fabric. I had a friend who was moving and giving away some fabric and the “Octobre” fabric was in there with a bunch of other fabric she was done with.

The words on the print are two-way, I just ended up cutting so much of the front appears upside down but it really isn’t. I also did a bias tape-ish lace on the inside in lieu of facings this time.

It’s a really cute, fun fall blouse!
