I purchased this Vogue pattern some time ago when Joann's had their sewing patterns on sale. It's such a cute top, and I remember coming across this pattern already knowing what I would pair it with before making the purchase.
PANTS // STUDIO F — CHOKER // FOREVER 21 — PURSE // VICTORIA SECRET — SANDALS — STEVE MADDEN
I can remember back in the day that I hated wearing anything with ruffles. Crazy, I know! But I have to blame that on my tomboy days when all I cared about was playing basketball. This pattern ended up catching my attention because I just loved the way the ruffles draped across it. It gives the blouse depth, shape, and flow. I ended up liking this pattern so much that I've made two so far in different colors, along with a few other people commissioning me to make them one also.
With a pattern for a blouse like this, I would suggest using a lightweight fabric. It allows it to move and flow the way that it should without being too heavy. I went with a more casual fabric material, a white poplin that I purchased from Hobby Lobby (here). But other than poplin, you can also use seersucker, silk dupioni, and lightweight crepe fabrics.
Although I listed the materials used to complete this top, I ended up making some slight modifications. Instead of using snaps to assist with the closure of the shirt. I decided to add two tie-folds to the right and left front bodice of the blouse. Mostly, because I don't trust the snaps to stay secure, and I felt like I could solve this issue with ties instead.
