Two posts happening in rapid succession here; I held off from posting about one garment because the other was complimentary.
I’ve been making an under bust corset in peacock colours and needed a blouse to go underneath. I found this one at a local second hand store. The colour was absolutely perfect, but all those wrap-around ties were awful.
It was a fairly easy job to cut the ties off and square the front so that I could add some buttons. I then discovered that my local spotlight store no longer stocks a wide range of buttons. Aargh. Some lovely sewing friends on Facebook pointed me in the direction of the wonderful Fabric Cave in Meadowbank, Sydney (more on them later) where I found the perfect buttons. Voila – new shirt.
And it looks perfect under my new corset.
