What I'm Working On....Blouses!

I ended up finding a repro pattern that is from one of the 1938 McCall dresses I posted about on Friday (not the green one though!).  The purple one, aka McCall 9906, can be found at EvaDress in a size 16 (B34).

I've been doing some planning for the Me-Made-May challenge and realized that I do not have enough me-made blouses to go with my trousers or two skirts I have made!  So this week is all about the blouses for me!

I'm working on the blouse from the Simplicity pattern that gave me the wonderful trousers:

The funny thing is that I am actually not a huge fan of the design of the blouse as it appears in the photo--so we shall see how it turns out!  I am making it in a bright pink satin!

Inspired by Susannah's blouse, I'm ready to get started on Simplicity 1722:

I'm going to give View 2 a try in a blue-grey cotton with bright pink buttons and trim.

Here's hoping I have some me-made blouses to wear in May!


  1. Yay for Me-Made-May! Look forward to your blouse creations, and good for you for filling the holes in your wardrobe. I am going to be very 'printy' in the coming month if I don't get cracking this weekend :)

  2. View 2 IS cute, yah for frilly necks!
    The bright pink satin is a bold choice, look forward to seeing that when its done!

  3. I'm sure it will look lovely. All of your creations turn out beautifully.

  4. lovely! I'm sure you'll look great in whatever you create! I've got a bunch more projects lined up, too. Got to stop flitting and focus, though ;)

  5. I can't wait to see how your blouse works out. I was debating about making it also. I think I would try to make it a long sleeved blouse rather than the 3/4 length.


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
