Back when I debuted my white moto jacket I wore this little blouse under it but I didn’t take the time to blog about it. I think I was just so excited about the jacket….
I used Newlook 6107. I really liked this blouse but at the time and considering my fabric choice, didn’t want to fiddle about with the buttons. So what did I go and do? Ignored them. Okaaaaay it’s not that simple but almost. When I looked at the pattern a little closer, I decided that it had plenty of ease to make it as a pullover blouse.
To do this, I cut the front piece on the fold, taking into consideration the seam allowance. I felt that the neckline might be a little too low for my liking so I raised it by 1 3/4 inches at the center. MUCH better! The only part that I found a little tricky was finishing the neckline… mitering the front center took some fiddling. I am overall pleased with it though!
This blouse has been quite the workhorse in my wardrobe these days. I always love a polka dot and though I usually choose fabrics that are much more colorful….I can always pair it with color.
You got a great result from this pattern. I see what you mean about the front being low on the original! I would not have thought you could get such a clean look from the cover photograph, kudos to you for a great fabric choice. Those neutral pieces always get worn so much, too.
Thanks Philippa! I think one of my favorite things about this top is the sweep of the hem. I even recreated it on a Sorbetto that I just made.
Ooh, totally loving your neutral polka dots, great little top!
I love the details of this, your neckline is so much more comfortable to wear though.
What a great wardrobe builder you have!
Love anything with a V neck. I think you did good by making it into a pullover blouse, it looks gorgeous on you and the fabric has a pretty drape and print…I´m on the hunt for a pattern that would look good with a striped cotton, any ideas???
for a top!!
That is so pretty top! I always love polka dots and you did a great adjustments on the pattern. Love the whole outfit on you 🙂
Very pretty blouse and polka dots rule!
This is such a sweet top and I love the necklace you've haired it with. The v-neck does look like it would be tricky!
Thanks Marrie! Sometimes a little neutral is good I guess.
Thanks Becki! The fact that I have worn it so much tells me that is was a good choice.
Such a cute blouse! A good example of how you never really know which me-mades will become your favorites, right? 🙂
Love this blouse! Cute and easy to wear!
