Birthday Blouse | Sil 450

Note - birthday blouse, not birthday suit! 


While travelling this summer down to the states, we got to stay with my good friend in Minneapolis.  I had been following the blog Patty the Snugbug for a while and she worked at this cool little shop Sewtropolis. 

So on my birthday, after some fun water sliding, we found this adorable shop - it was so much fun!


The blouse is made form a Michael Miller coordinating quilting cottons.  Then I got the contract pink fabric (fat quarter) here at Periwinkle Quilting.  It needed something...or it was going to die from the blahs.

I did make it up and wore it a few times...and something wasn't quite right.  It fit but looked funny.  Then I realized - it was too short.  So I found more of the 'solid' blue print and added to the bottom, following the shirt-tail hemline.  Love it now.

This is from Silhouette Patterns - 450 Nancy's Blouse.
