Blouse hack of Penny Dress

When I attended the Sew Southampton meet up in August I picked a remnant of quilting cotton from the swaps table. The length was a just 1 metre so I knew that there was a limit to what I could make with such a short length.

As the Penny dress by Sew Over It has a bodice with grown on cap sleeves and a narrow yoke I thought it would be an appropriate candidate to hack into a blouse. I was right.

I extended the bodice back and front as much as I could and used a contrast fabric for the back facing, yoke lining and bias binding for the armholes.

A quick project which has fitted in well to my Autumn wardrobe to wear with trousers or tucked into skirts.
