The post is a two for one! A crisp white blouse (Butterick 5526) and a wild leopard pencil skirt with a hot pink lining (New Look 6123). I've made Butterick 5526 several times before, but this time I finally made the pattern adjustments that I have been meaning to make (which were quite a few!). I bought Butterick 5526 when I first started sewing. I remember it took me probably a month to finish the blouse. I made view D with the front ruffles, which were hard to finish the edges without a serging machine. Last August, I made view C in a black and white gingham.

I like both the skirt and the blouse. Would you recommend the blouse pattern?

Cute! Where did you get the fabric. I have had the hardest time finding crisp white shirting fabric!
