Patti Blouse as interpreted by Paganoonoo customer Victoria

Paganoonoo customer Victoria sent photos 
of her new upcycled blouse, made from men's dress shirts, along with this message:

"Hi Michelle!
Your presentation (on upcycle sewing) at Puyallup (Sewing and Stitchery Expo) was fabulous.  I was inspired to get back to my first attempt.  So, here is my finished garment.     

I will be wearing this as it is giving me joy just looking at it.  Your instructions were superb. (Victoria used the Paganoonoo "Patti" design instructions and modified the collar)

I was baffled as to how to change up the collar as the button down is not my style.  I used V8709 for the collar idea.  I also made cuffs with a slit.
I have purchased the Michelle Dress pattern and that is next in line.  Your enthusiasm is most inspiring.
Kind regards,


Your version is fantastic!  The green and navy combination is striking and the alternative collar is quite attractive.

Thank you for sharing!
