I did find this very cute red, white and blue gingham-ish plaid cotton shirting for only $4.99 a yard. I'm a sucker for red and navy color combinations. Unfortunately, they only had a smidge over a yard left. My plan is to use it for the collar of a blouse. Butterick 7731 is the closest I have in my pattern stash to what I have in mind. However, I'm thinking short kimono sleeves and a seamless collar. Perhaps Simplicity 4530? I've had it in my favorites on etsy for awhile.
I've also picked up some new(to me)vintage patterns recently. The Simplicity 2163 is one I'd been searching for, but under a different number! I just stumbled upon a listing for it on ebay a couple of weeks ago, and in my size! Those pattern companies really didn't make it easy with changing and reusing numbers. Simplicity 6832 is a bit more current than I usually buy, but who could resist heart shaped pockets on a playsuit!?
