Friday: Vicarious Vintage 1912

Today's vicarious vintage pattern is a blouse.  Here is the pattern illustration:  

People have had a lot of fun with this pattern.  Msaviano eschewed (woo hoo, big word points for me!) the contrasting fabric shown on the collar and cuffs, and went for binding the collar to make it stand out.  You can see more pictures and read about her version here.  

Karen thought it was the perfect pattern for some striped fabric - look at how she flipped the direction of the stripes on the cuffs.  More here...  

Lisa and Robin used wooden beads to decorate the collar overlay.  Lots more pictures here.  

And check out Theresa's beautiful fabric choices.  More here.

Isn't it amazing how one pattern can lead to such different blouses?  I'm going to do one more post with a skirt - then we'll have been through a whole outfit - slip, blouse, skirt and the option of a wrap or a coat...  ;)

Hopefully, I'll be getting some pictures of my own sewing up SOON!  :)
