Double the Afternoon Fun!

I have to admit that I am seriously loving Jennifer Lauren’s Afternoon Blouse pattern.  I whipped up a blouse for the Easter holiday.  And after stuffing my face with chocolate eggs and jelly beans, I prepped and cut another version of the Afternoon Blouse that evening.

The Easter blouse is made of a mustard colored cotton with small white polka dots.   The double is a pink polyester with a jeweled black button.  The kimono sleeves and neckline give a modern-vintage feel that can definitely take on a personality of its own!

This pattern has some great features including how incredibly easy it is to whip one of these up, the button, and a small amount of fabric to construct (Hello — stash-busting brilliance!).  I even have another one planned in which I find a the hunt for the perfect novelty button is on (but this may take some serious searching for the right button — I want a chemistry button).   These are perfect for my work wardrobe or relaxing with friends and a cuppa.

As always, if you want to read the details and see more pictures, visit me at The Enantiomer Project!


Happy Stitching,

  1. Cool! Does the button work, or is it ornamental? I mean, if it doesn’t need to actually go through a button hole, you could use a vintage brooch. I guess you could anyway! Nice job!
