This blouse is a variation on the newly released upcycling pattern, The Patti Blouse by Paganoonoo on Etsy.
The pattern covers every aspect of making this upcycled blouse, from making design decisions, sizing choices, selecting starting materials, with step-by-step instructions and illustrations for disassembly and reassembly of the ready to wear garments.
|A flower adds extra interest to the decorative front band.|
|The new owner of this blouse is over 6 feet tall so the lower back section was made especially long.|
|The back was modified from the pattern to include an origami-like arrangement featuring a man's tie and on the left a collar point (sans button).|
Happy Upcycling! Michelle
