I flipped through my Happy Homemade determined to make something, I made the square neck blouse a few years ago and then set the book aside. It was time to take a look again.
I picked the Ribbon Tied Blouse, view C. I made a size 4-6 in a light and airy Art Gallery print. I love the feel of these fabrics, and they are a lot lighter than regular quilting cottons, so they are nice to use for garments. Well, at least for kids.
The front has quite a bit of gathering, but the back is just barely gathered. The sleeves are also slightly gathered, giving them a cute little puffy shape.
I also paired it with some well loved Oliver and S Puppet Show Shorts. I will be so sad when they size out of this pattern.
