Another post so soon? Yes, it’s true. As the day went on, I felt worse and worse about the Hummingbird outfit that I felt the need to start a new project right away so that it didn’t steal my sewing mojo. This project reminded me why I first fell in love with vintage patterns. While my original copy of McCall’s 3263 is a size 16, 34in bust, I only had to make 2 alterations, I added 3 inches to the pattern piece (yes, only one piece for the whole garment) and lengthened it an inch above the waist. The first muslin fit perfectly. While I feel ridiculous in the huge skirts, 50s bodices are drafted perfectly for my figure. Because the pattern it a single piece and has only 2 seams, one of each side, it took me all of 2 hours and most of that was the bias binding on the neckline and sleeves. I have been wanting a peasant blouse for so long but knew all that fullness around my waist would do me no favours. I love that this peasant blouse has lots of horizontal darts to fit it through the midriff. I can see making several of these.
