Here is my Vogue American Designer Original, Isabel Toledo blouse. I finished it! Yeah!
I purchased this pattern from eBay.
I was on eBay late one night looking for Ruben Toledo’s book of drawings – of course, I couldn’t find one used, but I did find this pattern instead. So my late night ramblings through the environs of Ebay were not for naught!
I did get some assistance in making this blouse – of course!
Here is the back of the blouse.
I added a sleeve placket vs. just the sleeve vent with a bias strip covering the raw edges.
My first choice of buttons – from my button box were too big.
So I went with my second choice – also from my button box.
Took me two muslins to get this pattern to fit. Here are my fitting notes and my sewing notes and a handy reminder NOT to buy anymore fabric – yeah right!
My next blouse is Vogue 7700.
This pattern is on the cover of the current Threads Magazine.
I am cutting the muslin for this one now. So, got to get back to it!
