Such a pretty blouse! Your additions improved the original pattern 100%. eat the pleating on the back!

Thank you so much! I really like the pleading too, I'm very happy with it. Thanks for commenting!

Such a nice addition to your spring and summer wardrobe!  Did you have to pre-wash the eyelet fabric?

Thank you! And yes, I did. I own about two pieces of clothing that I take to the dry cleaners. Everything else (especially my handmade stuff) has to be tough enough to survive the washing machine (or not-so-delicate hand washing at the least) which means I prewash all my fabric. I expected this eyelet to shrink a lot more than it did, maybe there's polyester or something in the embroidery that prevented it from shrinking so much?

I made this blouse using vintage McCalls 4933 and 100% cotton eyelet fabric. I juggle seeing all the eyelet blouses and tops in stores this year! I added a 5" cuff to the bottom of the blouse and pleated it in the back. I also took 2" off the sleeve length. The inside is finished with flat fell seams and bias tape.

Thanks for reading, happy sewing!

This is so cute! I love the little detail in back. Such a good idea, thanks for the inspiration!

I love how vintage styles can be updated for modern wear!  You took and inspiration and made it your own--which is why we sew, isn't it? Grin

Love your process (read your blog...such fun!)...it looks lovely and it is nice to know that there are still seamstresses that love the inside looking as nice as the outside!

Well, shucks, thank you so much! Yes, that is exactly why we sew, and aren't we so lucky to be able to do so?! Thank you for commenting and for reading my blog, it is much appreciated!

I saw a dress on Instagram for $220 that I fell in love with. Naturally, I cant pay $220 for a single dress, so I set out to create my own. I used vintage McCalls 7145 and made some changes which included straps across the back and ruffles.

It is fully lined with vintage peach polished cotton. I hand sewed the armholes and parts of the back to minimize the number of visual seams.

Sweet, simple little 1960's blouse pattern that I made with a vintage fabric (the floral print) and a new fabric (the solid yellow). The pattern had some issues (sigh) so I had to make some changes, but overall, I love the way it turned out and I would love to make another in lace for a bathing suit cover-up, without the collar.
