Sailboat Blouse DIY

I finally finished sewing costumes for the kids and, while pondering if I should make matching adult costumes (I am THAT cheesy), I decided to sew something just for me.  :)


Material: 1 yard 45" width cotton fabric

Pattern: Butterick 3383.  Needed to slim sleeves and body.  Narrowed neckline by 2" (see how here).

Difficulty: Easy/Intermediate

Time: ~2 hours


Sailboat Blouse DIY

I'm working on a sailboat dress for E (A-line, asymmetrical w/ ruffle), but she's been less than cooperative on getting fitted so this might be postponed for a while.  Kids can be so funny!

  2. What a cute shirt!!! I can't imagine how hard it'd be to get a small child to stand still for ANYTHING let alone fittings. Good luck!!! :D

    1. Thanks Lisa! It was so much easier when she was younger and not care what she was wearing. Now she's very particular - especially on clothing. It's so funny sometimes!

    1. Thank you for reading and your kind words! The bulk of my fabrics come from Joann's, Hancock Fabrics, Fabric.com and a local store in South Bay called Fabrics R Us. Hope that helps!
