So I finally sat down and put together this A-MAZING blouse by DuBarry. Why did I wait so long? I was missing out on some major summer cuteness!
Pardon the sweatpants...
Little appliqued flower.....added this as an afterthought. Aw!
The fabric is just an inexpensive gingham from JoAnn. Here is the pattern I used:
I'm working on another blouse from this same pattern. I had actually begun that one first, but sewed the "underarm flounce" on backwards and had to put it aside for awhile to save my sanity (I couldn't face ripping all of those stitches out of the delicate chiffon I chose. Ah!). SO, I'll come back to that one later.
You know what I love about this pattern? The possibilities are endless! You could make this up in many different fabrics and colors and it would still look darling. Also, it is easily incorporated into the modern wardrobe. I wore this shirt today with some jeans, gladiators, and a vintage silver belt. Looked great!
By the way, have I ever mentioned how much I love DuBarry patterns? Aren't they fab?
