Foxy: Simplicity 2154

DSC02874I’ve been working on the blouse from vintage repro Simplicity 2154 for the past week. This little blouse has been on my must make list for quite a while. Since it is Jungle January, I decided to pull out the only piece of “animal print” in my stash. This counts right? It has animals on it πŸ™‚

DSC02851I generally stay away from quilting cotton, but I couldn’t resist this cute fox print when I saw it. It’s Japanese, which seems to be the homeland of all things cute!










This top is pretty basic and I was able to squeeze it out of only one yard of fabric. The only instructions I deviated from was that I didn’t interface the bow. I didn’t see the point after I cut it on the bias. These two photos are the only ones I was able to take without my sweater on because it was so COLD. See my inability to smile… haha I hate being cold.

DSC02871The only new technique that went into making this top was I made a fabric covered button for the first time. Unfortunately, I don’t have a closeup photo of it. I centered one of the little fox faces over the center of the button.

I’m looking forward to trying this pattern out with a fabric with more drape. I’d like to see this hanging a little bit closer to my body in my next version.

    • No agenda.Both are derogatory. But I’m glad you’re sidestepping the issue at hand.Show me how you can justify using either word, let alone a racist comment like &#.ke0;w2tbac2s8” Go to anyone in your household, anybody on the street and use the word wetbacks in front of them in your conversation.You won’t. You wouldn’t in your house, on the street or anywhere else. So something’s wrong there.I’m astonished that AFI hasn’t erased this racist comment from your blog yet, so maybe they condone such behavior.I guess blogs have no rules, no boundaries. Racist comments be damn.

  2. i love it, something about the design of the pattern takes it to a slightly different place than what i usually think of when i see a pussy bow blouse, and it completely works with your foxy fabric.
