Patti Blouse as interpreted by Paganoonoo customer Victoria

Paganoonoo customer Victoria sent photos 
of her new upcycled blouse, made from men's dress shirts, along with this message:

"Hi Michelle!
Your presentation (on upcycle sewing) at Puyallup (Sewing & Stitchery Expo) was fabulous.  I was inspired to get back to my first attempt.  So, here is my finished garment.     

I will be wearing this as it is giving me joy just looking at it.  Your instructions were superb. (Victoria used the Paganoonoo "Patti" design instructions and
modified the collar

I was baffled as to how to change up the collar as the button down is not my style.  I used V8709 for the collar idea.

 I also made cuffs with a slit.

I have purchased the Michelle Dress pattern and that is next in line.  Your enthusiasm is most inspiring.

Kind regards,

Thank you Victoria!

I love your combination of light greens with navy, a favorite of mine too. The collar adaption is clever.  I hadn't thought of an add-on like that.

Congratulations, we can't wait to see what you do next!


P.S.  You can make your own version of the Patti blouse!  Get the instructions here. 

P.P.S.  If you are headed to the 2018 Sewing and stitcher Expo in Puyallup, WA see the same presentation that Victoria did - I will be giving it on the free stage all 4 days!
