Summer's End

casual retro plus size featruing 1940s wrap blouse from Mrs Depew Vintage

Today was the last day of the year that we'll take the kids to our favorite splash park. We're sad to see it close but that means fall is right around the corner!!

Today I finished a new blouse, made from the 1940s Wrap Blouse pattern from Mrs Depew Vintage. I love this blouse so much! I'm a sucker for a sweetheart neckline and its as comfy as a tee but much more stylish. I used a really pretty cotton plaid that will work well in my closet year round.

I made this blouse for Daffny of A Vintage Nerd in a knit fabric and it was really cute- like a 1940s t-shirt!

Although summer is ending, it's still quite warm in St Louis so I wore my hair in no-fuss braided pigtails (never too old, I think!) with my fun yellow wedges.

  2. Super cute!!! If I wear my plaid shirts untucked, I almost always tie them in the front (or to one side, if they're long enough), too.
