More pussy bow blouses, sorry guys what can I say, its one of my favourite styles. This time I used a vintage pattern though. So you are looking at a very different style tom the previous ones I made from my own pattern.
I used McCalls 7385 view B but cut short sleeves instead of the long ones. The fabric is a mint green pin spot poly cotton I already had, paired with red buttons for a (good) clashing contrast.
The colour combination was inspired by this picture on Pinterest.
I just love!!!! mint and red so I had to create an outfit incorporating those colours.
The blouse is a more boxy style and looser fit compared to my other ones but I like it just as much. I wore it out to a Burns Night dinner (sorry no tartan) so the extra room was much appreciated ;-)
I made the skirt, too. I wanted a little more 1960s flair so I went for a buttoned down A-line style and added a pocket and huge vintage buttons for detail. I used tomato red cotton drill for the skirt.
I think this outfit will see me through Spring as well.
And until it gets warmer, I'll pair it with a cardi. I think I'd like a red one better to go with this outfit but I haven't got one (sad I know, my last red cardi got paint all over the sleeves and I haven't replaced it yet ;-((((
I hope you all had a good weekend. Any mint or red or both on your sewing table????
