Holiday Blouse

I purchased a few vintage patterns from E-bay and I decided to use this one to make a new outfit for myself for Christmas. I finished the blouse last night and I plan to eventually make the jumper but have not yet found any material I like. All the materials save the buttons came from Hobby Lobby. The buttons are from my little stash. The only change I made to the pattern was to interface the front facing.



The Pattern


Front


Collar

Sleeve

Back

I am really liking the print, it's very festive. But, I must say, I was so glad when this was finished because I was so sick of sewing darts. There were twelve!

I love this blouse! I know the darts were time consuming but they have made such a difference. The shaping on this is just beautiful, and really makes it special.
