So for the first lap of the race, I bring you a blouse and skirt combo. This powder, blue Ginger I believe works well with this little, pink blouse I made from McCall's 8609. It's been fun making random blouses to go with my standard Gingers. I like the butterfly sleeves from this pattern because they are easy on the arms, although I must tell you that I found them a bit tricky to sew together. The idea for this outfit was inspired by one of my handbags, no big surprise there. It's been part of my collection for a while and it was time for a proper matching outfit.
Although I will be making another sailor blouse out of the same fabric as the skirt to make a suit effect soon. Finally, I pulled the look together with this 50's cuff bracelet that I fell in love with. I love the weight of it, it's really well made.
Happy Spring Everyone!!!!
