I tested the Simplicity 3688 1940s skirt pattern. This was an easy make and I love the outcome. The skirt looks nice when combined with the Sew Over It Pussy Bow Blouse that I have also made.
Immediately after seeing the Simplicity 1587 pattern I fell in love with the bodice. After I made the dress I started wondering if I could turn the pattern into a blouse. I used a well-fitting blouse pattern as a guide to draw a pattern for the lower half of the blouse and used yellow viscose fabric.
