Mail order blouse and Ginger
Pattern: Blouse- it's a Sew-Rite 8251 and Ginger by Colette Patterns for the skirt
Fabric: Blouse- Cotton, vintage buttons, skirt-gabardine
Make Again? Yes, I would like the blouse in many colors mostly because I can move in it very well, no tight arms, hooray!
Alterations: Of course. The blouse is a 32 bust, which is perfect for my shoulders, but my hip line needs added inches. With the Ginger I have decided that I need to make them a bit smaller in the waistline. I have been cutting the size 8 and it's about two inches too big. So I'll be working on that for the next time.
Have a wonderful vintage day,
