Purple Plaid Blouse11:04 AM
As part of Kids Clothing Week Challenge at elsie marley, my first item I've sewn this week is a little blouse for Ellaria.
The Music Class Blouse from Oliver + S in a pink and purple plaid.
I used the short sleeve version with the mandarin collar.
Rather than pattern match the plaid, I cut the front and back yokes on the bias or diagonal to make it easier, kind of like cowboy shirts.
The blouse came together really quickly and was pretty easy to sew.
I guess sewing small always makes things go quicker.
One of my favorite features are the pin-tucks on the front and back just below the yokes, and the box pleat on the sleeves at the shoulder.
I had a scrap of double fold bias tape I'd made for the rainbow chevron dress and used it to make the plum bow.
I think it's a cute little top that would be cute with a skirt or under a jumper too.
I'm getting excited to have an older daughter to sew for!
