My latest thrift store refashion!!!
I found this shapeless cotton blouse at the thrift store recently. I was drawn to the print and I could ‘see’ I could create a 1930’s style blouse with it!
It is a boxy blouse with no fitting, but the fabric!!! It is a super light cotton and the print just said ‘1039’s’ to me! The pleats down the front also gave it a nice design feature.
So I took it home and just sewed in some darts for shape, added lace to the pintucks for extra detail.
The biggest change was to the sleeves. I took these off entirely, and added an extra panel to make them bigger, go I could gather them up and create a ‘puffy’ 30’s style sleeve from this tired thrift store number.
Lace was also added to the sleeve hem, and then I put a strip of fabric under that lace so it looked more like the like on the blouse.
It is done!
This was a fairly easy refashion and can be done on all sorts of blouses.
So I hope you like the refashion and maybe it gives you a little inspiration on what you might be able to do with the next boxy blouse in a fabulous print you find!
So did you like it? Would you try this one??
