Today, we have two finished items, both of which are part of the planned wardrobe. The first is my topper, from Butterick 4046. I love the short length, but I thought it would look silly with the blouses. It’s in a very soft knit off a mystery/bargain table and is very nice to wear. I plan on making the shorter length to go with a dress,
The next piece is the blouse from Mail Order 705. I think I’ve decided that puffy sleeves of any variety don’t work for me. Otherwise, I love this blouse. The pattern calls it a “shirt-jacket” but there was nothing in the construction that was different from a regular blouse.
