Another rendition of the multi-tucked, FBA’d woven blouse. My very own frankenpattern, if you will.
I thought I had all the fitting kinks worked out when I cut this and took it to Sewing Camp. As you can see it is sleeveless, just like the first one.
Confession: I didn’t have all the fitting issues worked out as well as I thought I had. Hence, no sleeves.
BUT (and that is a large hopeful but) I think I have now. Will blouse #3 have sleeves? If it does, will I be able to move my arms? We shall have to wait and see.
I did my usual styling, making the under collar and collar band in a different fabric. I like doing this – the underside peeks out, and provides a little extra something-or-other. Hey, it’s my blouse, it makes me smile. That’s enough for me.
The armholes are hemmed using a baby hem. Instead of buttons I applied snaps.
The fabric is…ancient. I have no idea where I got it. It’s been in the stash for decades. Literally decades. I think it may even have moved to Cactusville with me, way back when. It is that old. A very soft cotton with a sheeting feel to it.
