The blouse is Butterick 7641 c. 1958. And the shorts are Wearing History WWII Overalls in the shorts version.
This blouse is another incarnation of my friend's curtains. I love this color so much! And with the vintage mother of pearl style buttons, it fits with my unofficial theme for this summer's sewing-a touch of western.
It's been so great to have shorts again! There are just some activities that don't go well with skirts.
I love the cute little tab detail!
And here you can see a peak of my pocket lining! I used the same fabric as I did with my overalls. It just makes them that much more fun!
I'm definitely making a pants version of this pattern for this winter but I think they'll need belt loops. I keep wanting to throw a belt on with these shorts. There's something I like about high waisted pants and belts. Maybe it's the *hey look at the smallest part of me* vibe it gives off.
Do you find it hard to blog about those basic pieces even if they do get into your regular wardrobe rotation?
