Simple Blouse Week Day 3: Front Placket3:30 AM
It's Day 3!
This time I went with navy gingham and added a front placket and 3/4 length sleeves.
Adding a placket is really easy and opens up a lot of opportunities to make tops with non-stretch fabric.
I use it a lot with kids clothes since they have large heads in proportion to the rest of their bodies.
I also made a longer sleeve and cut it on the bias.
I think I got this shirting fabric from fabric.com a long time ago, but it doesn't wrinkle which is pretty great.
Here's where I wore it to church with navy sweater tights and my green pleated pocket skirt.
Oh and it was daylight savings time which I totally forgot about, so I thought I had an hour and started curling my hair when my husband brought to my attention I had 10 minutes until church started.
So I put the uncurled top half in a bun and ran but we were still late for church...but so was the main speaker so I didn't feel too bad.
