I started this one before the holiday but never got around to finish it up and blog about it. It’s looking a bit 60’s doesn’t it? You can almost imagine a secretary in some swinging 60’s British comedy wearing it. The fabric is a reissue retro print, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was used for curtains back when, but it does look a bit 30’s too with the petite flowers. Anyhow, bottom line, is that I love it! Finding proper vintage fabrics that are cotton and not some synthetic mix is tricky these days, so this is a great substitute. The blouse might even make it to Floremark fall collection that I will start working on next week. We’ll see.
I guess we could also call it my birthday blouse – I’m turning 39 today. Feels a bit weird typing that out, time does seem to go faster as you age and seeing it in black and white makes me aware that I soon can call myself middle aged.
Had a lovely birthday dinner and got some great pressies, including Portal2 which is just about the only computer game that I really enjoy (the other being Red Alert). So now I got even more to interfere with my sewing time!
