80's Blouse and 60's skirt!
First up, this charming couple. A 80's top in love with a 60's skirt, say it isn't so. I grew up in the 80's. At the time, I loved the fashions of that day, but the 90's came rolling in and I lost my loving feelings towards the eighties. Now their back. Mrs. Exeter from Dressing Mrs. Exeter wrote an interesting post about fashion and the decades. How fashions we laughed at years ago, now we consider them endearing. It really got me thinking about returning to my childhood roots. So, I decided to made this 80's blouse. Thanks Mrs. Exeter, I would have pasted up this pattern before! I like the sleeves, all six of them. They give a nice layered effect. I would like to make this blouse again with a nautical theme.
Here's a big shout out to Jane from Handmade Jane Thanks Jane for recommending this skirt. I kept looking at your skirts and loved them. To my surprise, I had this very pattern in my drawer. LOL, I need to take an inventory of my patterns! This was my first time sewing a lap zipper. I used this video to learn how. what we we do without youtube? Anyway, this is also my MMJune outfit for today. What are you working on? Are you filling in any gaps? I am, I'll be back in a little while with the next update.
Until then have a Wonderful vintage day,
