New York 2766

This is the first outfit from my planned wardrobe.  The skirt is another one made from Simplicity 1788.  What a difference fabric can make!  It looks much more 30’s in a solid color than in the purple, green and white fabric.  The blouse is New York 2766.  The only style change I made was to lower the V neck.  This is the first 30’s outfit or dress that my husband has commented on, so I assume that means it’s a keeper.

    Fantastic! The adjustment at the neck keeps it a touch more modern as well as making your neck look nice and long. I bet you wear this combo once a week!

    Yay! You’re back!!
    LOVE the blouse!! Gorgeous. x

  5. This one really stood out! I really love the combo, and especially the blouse. I wanted to say thank you, because you were the first person I saw online upsizing patterns, and it inspired me to do the same, instead of forfeiting some great options, so THANK YOU 🙂

    That looks really good and will be great staple pieces for your ‘wardrobe’. Can’t wait to see the rest. I shall be stealing ideas right and left as I need to have a more planned wardrobe but havn’t a clue where to start.
