Two plus two.

It has been so long since I've made this cute little number, in fact, the last time was over three years ago.  Why, why did I wait so long?  I forgot how much I absolutely adore the shape of this blouse.

This is a size 4 lengthened a bit to approximately a 5 in Riley Blake with some random solid I had in my stash.

See what I mean about the shape?  I love how it's more fitted around the chest and looser around the middle.

I went boring and just did white buttons down the back.  Nothing spectacular.  I thought about trying to match one of the pink/peaches, but it's a pretty busy top already.

I am thinking about maybe trying to lengthen it to a dress, not sure how it would affect the shape, though.  I don't want it to look awkward.  Either way,  I will definitely be making this one again soon.


  1. great colours on her, so pretty ;o)

  2. I love the fabrics you chose. it really is a sweet little top. I wish my girls liked wearing woven tops!

  3. I have always thought this pattern would make a great dress too. This is beautiful!

  4. Yes!! I love this shape! It's about time I revisted this pattern, it is really one of my favorites. I know it would look great as a tunic, and I don't see why not as a dress.
