The before and the after
This time I realised I could use the sleeves and cuffs as they are, the buttoned cuff is what made me think of double buttons for the front and I only had to recut the sleeve to match the length of the vintage pattern piece.
I love the illustrations on this pattern, which was a free gift, many years ago from a magazine called The Peoples Friend! For the full story on how I cut out the blouse and then had to redo to avoid the frumpy look! visit my blog!
