Historical Costume Inspiration Festival: Mandie's Sailor Blouse

The Inspiration...
The sailor blouse worn by Mandie in the cover illustrations of both Mandie and the Foreign Spies and Mandie and the Singing Chalet.
The Costume...
I used this vintage sailor blouse pattern that my mom used when she was a girl, sometime in the 70s I believe.
The blouse is made of white cotton material with red bias tape for the trim, and the skirt is my favorite half circle denim skirt.
"Mandie" and "Snowball", aka Tasha and Mitts.
