I have *finally* taken pictures of my playsuit!
I showed off a few pictures of the blouse from my trip to Florida and I love it!
It's from Advance 8511 which I've made several times.
Of course, you need more than just a blouse to make a playsuit!
The shorts I made from Wearing History's Sailor Playsuit Pattern a few years ago.
Actually, the skirt from that playsuit goes great with this blouse too! But I'll save that for another outfit shoot.
The skirt was made from the dirndl skirt sew along. And it buttons all the way down for easy playsuit action.
Although, you do have to be careful where you de-skirt! Most people wear quite a bit less than shorts under their skirts. lol.
I wore this outfit to Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in Kentucky.
It's a restored 19th century village that used to be the home of a religious sect called the Shakers.
The buildings are quite darling. I felt like I walked on to the set of a Jane Austen novel! It would be just the perfect place for a Regency event! Oh, well. Perhaps next time.
The grounds were very beautiful and peaceful. It was a great way to spend a relaxing day soaking up some history.
