1905 Anne Shirley-Inspired Blouse

Just this afternoon I had the strong desire to pull out some fabric from my dwindling stash bin and combine it with a winsome and old fashioned pattern.

I found a match.
I have already cut most of it out, and have already begun sewing some. I'm guessing that I may have enough room in front for some vintage mother of pearl buttons, and I'm wanting to add that vintage lace somewhere. Perhaps hem the cuffs with it on the 3/4 length sleeves?

We'll see how it decides to turn out. Perhaps if it turns out well, I'll pair it with a ankle length blue skirt and wear a red scarf with it for my church's Old Fashioned Sunday picnic on the 4th of July. Do I dare bring my straw boater hat and vintage boots shown in these pictures?

Yes, you do dare. After all, the pastor commanded that we wear old-fashioned attire! It sounds like a scrumptious outfit...

It was sooooo nice to see you for a few minutes yesterday. I'm going to call soon so that we can catch up more.
Love you!~Lisa
