Two Rayon tops

This fabric has been in the stash for so long.  I think 5 years at least and the store changed it’s name.

I used a Vogue pattern 9117, for the tank top, I find it a bit wide in the neck  and a little low, but I like it. Not sure I want to travel with it, I had it in Toronto for 3 weeks and it never made it’s way out of the bag, I didn’t want to hunt down an iron.

The button up blouse, I used McCall’s  Pattern 6512, ( it is no longer in the listings) the first time I made this blouse I didn’t really have enough room in the bust and those 3/4 sleeves were binding on my forearms. So this time I left off the necktie and made the short sleeves. I also did a FBA, I think I added too much. On the other hand, it is comfortable, cool in the hear and can be worn over the tank top.

I think both of these tops will be going to the thrift store. While I love the fabric, it doesn’t really feel like me. I have seen people in the nursing home where something similar, oh dear. Why keep it. if the fit is off? Those green pants need a rethink as well.
