I have 2 teenage daughters and despite my love of crafting from a young age neither of them has had any inclination to take up sewing. They are both incredibly arty and very talented on the drawing and design front but have no interest in actually creating anything that they can wear.
So I was surprised when my eldest (now 17) asked me to make her a blouse in one of my dress weight fabrics, she wanted it to wear for 6th form.
She knew exactly the style she wanted and I was happy to discover that she wanted a vintage style blouse with an open flat collar and even more happy to find a pattern on Ebay in her size for £5.99. McCalls 7277, a 1940s pattern which was a complete bargain.
