Some of you might remember the pink eyelet blouse I made earlier this year for Elsa.
Wren wants a similar blouse, but in white. I inherited a lot of eyelet from my grandmother. I used Elsa’s shirt pattern to draft a larger one for Wren. I made Elsa’s shirt pattern from a shirt she already had.
Because the pink eyelet had a finished edge, I didn’t useelastic on the edges on the sleeves. The white eyelet does not, so I ran elastic through the seams for the sleeves.

Less than a yard of fabric
1/4″ wide elastic for sleeves and neck
Safety pin to run elastic through casings
About 2 1/2 hours
The fabric came from my grandmother’s stash. All I had to purchase was elastic, which I bought on sale from Wawak, and thread (also bought in bulk from Wawak).
