The other day one of the ladies at my work surprised me by giving me three lovely vintage skirts that had been her older sisters (and perhaps mothers?) in the 50's and 60's. She talked about how one skirt in particular she remembers her sister wearing with a lovely peasant blouse, and so I immediately knew I had to have one to wear with my darling new skirt. I can't really afford much new clothing at the moment, but I did have some fabric and so decided to grab a pattern and see if I could swing it. I have tried sewing on and off for several years now, and it just never seems to stick. However, this blouse turned out pretty well! I'm already plotting a few more, and I'm gonna try to stick with it this time.
Those who actually sew will scoff at me I'm sure for how nervous I was making this super simple blouse. It was really nerve-racking though! I did it, it's far from perfect, but I will make a few more, and who knows maybe I'll try to make a skirt or dress?

What have you all been sewing lately?
