Hello everyone! I needed a top to wear for a summer wedding, and what could be more perfect than transforming the beautiful date night dress pattern by April Rhodes into a blouse?
This worked perfectly with a bright pink pencil skirt I made, but I also love it with jeans. The transformation was simple, as I just cut the pattern straight down from the armpits to my desired length. I finagled little hemmed slits on the sides going up about two inches for a bit of muffin top wiggle room.
I adore these flirty sleeves and the french seams are a delight. And can we talk about the fabric? I’ve been wanting to drape myself in this 1000 cranes fabric from the Tsuru collection by Rashida Coleman-Hale. Now was the time.
Are you addicted to jeans? Or are you mostly in dresses? I tell you what, I am FEELING the fall breeze we’re getting here in Michigan.
