While looking through patterns for some Self-Stitched-September ideas, I came across this one. The lines on the jacket are similar to the blouse I desire so much. So I did a little rummaging.
And found a 1970 era polyester knit blouse. It even has the zipper like the sport top does.
I also came across 2 very lightweight men's sport shirts. I could use one of these and save the second for another day.
So I played with the pattern and the fabric. For one night my table was in a state of organized chaos. I poured out two cups of tea that both went cold.
Taa daa!!! Today's finished results. (I'm so proud!) It's slightly big, but that's okay. It will be comfortable when moving. And I'll look so cool wheeling around :)
Someday I'll be ordering all the neat stuff in that catalog, but for now I'll settle for a quick self-stitched imitation. The two tops that I used for this cost a total of approximately $2.50, and I didn't even have to purchase a zipper. I've got a few more vintage jersey knits that I can restyle once I figure out what I need them to be. Gotta dance! Gotta play!
Whatever you do, make sure to have fun, folks!
