Both in post and make with this one. The blouse itself is just a good old standby, short sleeved cotton blouse. The sort that is always a good Summer time staple, quick to make and economic in fabric and a handy go-get to have in the wardrobe. I’ve made it before here.   It is McCalls 2094.

Not the best of places to photograph a blouse I know – but quick!

What I really wanted to do a quick post about is thrifting – one of my favourite past-times. The local charity shop now has a haberdashery shelf of sorts, with used buttons, zips and odd lengths of fabric. I bought two large pieces of this yellow cotton for £1 each.[the colour is actually a deeper sunny yellow than shown] . This blouse also took four yellow’white polka dot buttons that I bought at the White Lion Antique centre and cost £3 for a tube of about 50 small blouse buttons. So I suppose my blouse cost about £1.40. Now that’s  definitely a handy blouse!


I love all things creative and an eternal enthusiast. I am enduringly interested in absolutely everything remotely creative and never happier than when being shown 'how to'.
