Lavender...from Quilt to 18th Century Gown to Summer Blouse for my Daughter-Simplicity 2599

Several years ago I draped my first 18th century gown on a contemporary cotton print for my daughter. I chose this fabric because I already had it in the stash so it was good for practicing.  Also it was my daughter's favorite color.

I had originally bought this fabric for a quilt. I ended up buying too much of this fabric so there was plenty for the gown. Eventually my daughter outgrew the gown, so I ripped it apart to recycle for another outfit. I decided to make this blouse for her, from Simplicity 2599.

She likes this blouse a lot and has worn it often.
