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.

So sweet! (Love the ponytails.)
So, so cute! Genevieve is always dressed so classically and so age appropriately.
A sweet, pretty blouse. x
Good for you! She looks like a little French school girl.
adorable. i'm so impressed by your skills.
I love this! I'm impressed. I haven't tackled a shirt yet. It seems so complicated--sleeves. Collars. Stuff like that.....
Wow! It's lovely - beautifully done! I'm so impressed!!! If you can do a placket and neckband, you're beyond me : ) I haven't done either of those yet....and I always sew on the sleeves open/before I sew up the side seams...I'm such a cheater with sewing!
Your daughter is such a cutie!
Yes, it's so good after you've done something you like to do it again, improving if you need to.
