This looks so easy and fun. I'm not that "crafty" of a person but I think that I could pull this off. :) And this is probably a silly comment, but I loved the sweater/blouse you were wearing in the photos and would be curious to know/see more of it. Did you make it or modify it from an existing garment?


Hi Sarah,

I was wearing a blouse made from the bodice of a 1950s Butterick dress pattern, something like this (I couldn't find the exact one I used): https://www.etsy.com/listing/124038600/butterick-2560-pattern-for-misses-double

Only my pattern had a wider shawl collar without notches, as the one above shows. I added several inches to the hem of the bodice to make it a blouse, and because the pattern was several sizes too small, only used one row of buttons to close it. I thought it would work for my 1930s themed pictures because of the busy print and the almost cape-like collar. I'm wearing it with a 3/4 sleeve light blue cardigan.

I'd be happy to send you a picture, if you give me your email address.
