The Anna Blouse...

Monday, March 24, 2014



I'm having a bit of 'blog' writers block at the moment. There's a lot to say, but words just aren't coming easily this week. So, a short and sweet sewing blog post with mostly pictures will have to suffice this time round.

This is the Anna bodice turned into a back button-up blouse. Pretty sweet huh?

I actually made and took photos of the blouse before we moved into our new house. I was hoping to find the time to make up a tutorial to go along with this post but unfortunately, that just hasn't happened yet.  If you would like to know how I did it, let me know in the comments and I'll rustle up a tutorial for you.






And just quickly, while we're on the subject of the BHL ladies, have you seen their kickstarter page? I've had the honor of meeting (and fabric shopping with) Elisalex and Charlotte, and they are such lovely ladies! There are some pretty sweet goodies available for all pledges (big and small), so if you can pledge anything towards their project, you can do so here

I'll be back this week with a sneak peek of what's been eating up my life at the moment (and has taken up all my words. And it ain't just the house, though that has been taking up plenty enough on it's own). Can't wait to share...

  1. When I opened this I was wondering what pattern you had used. The Anna is perfect for this, and I think I am now going to have to make multiple versions of this. I finished my first Anna dress this weekend, and I am in love with the pattern Would absolutely love a tutorial, I am quite the fan of button backs.

    1. I love my Anna's too! I have another project to share using the Anna bodice, but haven't quite gotten round to taking pictures for it yet :)

      I will definitely get onto making a tutorial for this - so glad you like it!

    1. Thanks Kelly! I hate writers block - I know I have things to say, just no words (well, good ones anyway!) to say them. But a picture tells a thousand words, right?

  3. Your blouse is gorgeous! And what a clever hack. The buttons on the back are a pretty touch. I love it paired with your pink skirt.

  13. I've been looking for a vintage button back blouse but can never find one in my size. I already have this pattern and your idea is genius. The Anna bodice looks perfect as a top.

  18. This is gorgeous. I love my 3 Anna dresses, and would love to see a tutorial on how you made this top. I think I know what I would do, but it would be interesting to see if your method matches with my thoughts.

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
