30's Flare for the 21st Century

I really love this blouse from HotPatterns (it's the Miss Moneypenny Pussycat Blouse) - it has just the right amount of soft, feminie style without being really gooey. I finshed it up today, and it's part of a Fall 2006 wardrobe.

This is an idea I learned from Diva Georgene, and it's a great way to really maximise your sewing effforts.

So far I've completed the long black skirt, which has a secret lime green lining that coordiantes with the blouse. Next up might be the Burda cardigan with the faux collar and cuffs. Gotta look for some nice black double knit.
