I'm just romantic enough to want to wear my wedding dress on my anniversary, but a dress wasn't going to work. So I made a Mimosa blouse and feel good about it. Because I was working around existing seam lines and had already cut the skirt short, it was a challenge to get this cut out. There are some very bulky seam intersections and the lining has a horizontal seam that shows in the right light.
I could nit-pick all the problems, but instead, I'm celebrating that for my third anniversary, I'll be able to fulfill my dream of wearing my wedding "dress." This shirt even has enough ease to accommodate quite a bit of weight change, as long as my shoulders stay the same.
Like in my wedding dress, I used blue thread. I did use white (and grey when I ran out of white) for some places where I didn't want the thread showing, like for the hem of the lining, but I used blue where I could. The ties are the sleeve tippets from the original dress.
