Lion's tooth

Hat & shoes - vintage, belt - thrifted, skirt & top - made by me

I mentioned in my last post that I had picked up Simplicity's 4044 so I could make the swing trousers, but while I'm searching for the perfect fabric for that project, I decided to use some of the printed voile I picked up at a Spotlight sale recently and give the blouse a try.

How cute is the dandelion print?



One day I will learn how to match prints… 


I am SO happy with the result. The pattern is originally for a long-sleeved blouse, but I wanted to try a short sleeve option for more versatility. The whole thing took me only a couple of hours to put together and came out really well!

I decided to wear it with another made-by-me piece from a while ago which I've only just begun to fit into again (thanks to many a cheeseburger on our holiday last year.. oops).

I would definitely recommend this blouse pattern for anyone who wants to whip up a cute, 40's-inspired blouse in a reasonable amount of time :)

  5. Dandelion print! Yay! That blouse looks amazing, I love the shape of it. I've been yearning after that pattern for the pants, and now the blouse is calling my name. I think I'm going to have to splurge and pay full price.... ♡

  6. I own this pattern but have yet to cut it out and try it, the blouse you made turned out so cute! Now I am very tempted to crack open my copy of the pattern and give it a try! The entire outfit is lovely!

  8. I just discovered your blog via the ModCloth style gallery. I love this look! Spot-on 1940s styling, and it's so cool that you made the blouse and skirt yourself. The tailoring is really nice!

    All the best,
    Amber
