Date Night Blouse

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.

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.
