Finished (almost) One Blouse

This is what I sewed Thursday. A blouse for a granddaughter.

It is from a pattern I bought 27 years ago. (Oh gosh that makes me sound old!!!) I have made lots of these blouses for my little girls, from Mrs 27 through to Miss 15. And for my boys too. With a few alterations this blouse pattern becomes a nightie pattern just right for tiny babies in winter! Now I am stitching it for granddaughters! (One of whom is having a birthday next week and the other who has just mastered the art of pulling herself up on furniture!)

And these are the buttons which make the "almost" necessary in my blog post title. Off to sew some buttons on!

That is such pretty fabric especially with all the embroidery on it, and the buttons are just going to finish off the blouse perfectly.

Like the blouse! I love sewing for the grandkids...fast and uses up smaller pieces of fabric!

That blouse is a classic which is why you're still using the pattern after 27 years. I'd say you got your moneys worth!

Lovely (almost ) finish . The buttons add a wonderful touch of cute to an already gorgeous article of clothing.
