Handmade Vintage Simplicity 9438 Wrap Blouse in Vintage Daisy Print Polyester


This top was made with a Simplicity 9438, a 1980's pattern for one-yard wrap tops.  Remember how I just moved across the country, and had to leave 3/4 of my things in a storage unit? Yeah, well that means a lot of my patterns didn't make it out with me.  I kind of wish I had packed this one, it was fun to make, and is super versatile. Sigh. 




It ties on the inside, and closes on the outside with three tabs and buttons. 


The original pattern didn't have the peplum, I added that because I'm not a big fan of midriff tops, and to give the top a bit more shape. I used a vintage, lightweight, polyester. For those of you who have been reading the blog for a while know that I despise polyester. I made an exception for this one, how could I not? Look at that awesome daisy print. 

Other details: Jeans by Gap. "Oscar" pumps by Jessica Simpson in coral. Vintage fabric from The Tin Thimble

This top gets me through a lot of spring and summer days, and I'd love to make another out of cotton. Do you have a favorite wrap pattern? Wrap dresses, pants, skirts? I'd love to find a great new pattern!
