Two New Blouses

Aha! 2 new summer blouses. Both are from McCall's 5388.

Changes I made:
  • Took in 1/2 inch from each side. (I went one size down than my usual pattern size and that was not quite enough.)
  • Shortened the length by 4 1/2 inches. This shirt was really long.
  • Turned straps into ties.
Shirt #1: Blue cotton from Joann's.

Shirt #2: Light weight seersucker from Thrift store.

Two pretty tops for me. I love the power that comes with being able to make your own clothes.
