Taking on the challenge for the first time from 'The Monthly Stitch', I have been bossed into making up a vintage blouse pattern from my stash. Read more about the challenge here if you are not already familiar with this site.
I put the following 3 patterns to the vote and fellow monthly stitchers voted the Butterick blouse a clear winner and this is what I must now make by the end of the month for this challenge.
The results were as follows:
- Butterick Blouse - 62%
- Simplicity shirt dress - 34%
- Vintage coat - 4%
|Vintage printed voile - I have had this in my stash for ages, but can't bear to cut into it!|
|Striped jersey - I think this would work well for this style, but some pattern alterations would be required to make it work for a knit fabric.|
|Sheer black voile with opaque stars - This is the one I'll most likely go with|
