I am on a roll trying to clear this cutting table before I leave for convention on Tuesday. I finished the floral blouse to go with yesterday's jumper. This is a floral remnant that I got from BessieMary when I bought both the orange dot and the green ghost fabrics. Thanks Jan, I would never have thought to put these together, but I love it.
Blouse pattern is the same as yesterday and the brother/sister outfits. I knew I was short on time so I just cut them all out at the same time. As stated before, the blouse is CC "Meg" which is out of print. It has a sweet sleeve, though I did lengthen the sleeve by about a three quarters of an inch. For this blouse, I added a sweet ruffle to the collar for something different.
The collars are all drafted using Gail Doane's instructions from her Peter Pan Collar class. If you ever get a chance to take that class, I highly recommend it. To add the ruffle, I trimmed away
This is a size 2 "Lucy" with a size 1 armhole cut on it. Princess is a tall young lady and a bit on the "stocky" side these days. She needed the width and length of the 2, but her armsyce length is a size 1. Instead of all that figuring about how to enlarge a size 1, I had a light bulb moment of just using the armhole and making the rest the next size up. It worked great. She is 32" tall and 28# at 14.5 months. I hope that helps for those trying to decide what size to make.
Great baseball! Great win! Our prayers go out to hometown boy, Phillies player Ryan Howard, and hope that his injuries heal quickly.
