Yesterday the mail came, and in it was this gorgeous little skirt all the way from Australia, courtesy of this great blogger. I needed a top to wear it with. After Little V went to bed, I tried my hand at blouse #1 from this 1950s sewing pattern.
I used a $1.00 fabric remnant from Ikea. It's a nubbly, thick cotton. (I'll iron it, I swear).
Dig the vintage collar.
A row of random retro buttons.
And a little inverted pleat at each sleeve.
The perfect outfit for a game of ring-around-the-rosey on Mommy's lamp.
