A Ruffled Blue Blouse for Genevieve
She needed one more short-sleeved shirt for school. I had the requisite blue fabric from Kim's parents' moving clean out. I got a $.99 pattern at JoAnn's - I wanted a simple blouse with several variations.
Most of the modern girl patterns were for costumes, pajamas, and fancy dresses. Very telling about what people are willing to sew for little girls!
In my naivete, I thought I had a simple pattern! I doggedly followed the directions and the tailoring came out just fine.
I think I'll make her a long sleeved one while it's still fresh in my mind.
