Handmade Vintage Advance 9145 Blouse in Glow Voile by Amy Butler


Happy Wednesday, Everyone! I put together this top sort of on a whim and I am so, so happy with how it turned out. This voile is by Amy Butler, and you can find it at The Tin Thimble's Etsy store. I originally planned on lining the top, but with the recent humidity (it's been 100% a few times lately. And NOT raining. I didn't even know that was possible.), and the heat, I ended up just leaving it a single layer and finishing the inside with a combination of bias tape and french seams. 




The original pattern was for a dress, but I knew I wouldn't wear it as much, so I cut about 3 feet off of the skirt and decided to gather the peplum, as opposed to pleating it like the original.  I added extra gathers in the back to give it more shape, and added a small keyhole above the zipper. 



I love, love, love it when a project goes off without a hitch and turns out to be something I can wear often. The husband-to-be and I went on a date the next day and I proudly wore it out!
