Description

I can’t remember where did the idea of a pleated shirt come from, but somehow it stuck in my head and got me constructing and sewing. The fabric had a mind of its own and oh, how I secretly damned myself during all this process. When I finally finished it, I was more than pleased.

      The pattern wasn’t hard to draft but the fabric needed some work.

    And as you should be. The blouse is gorgeous and beautifully sewn. What fabric did you use? It looks like crepe?

      Thanks (:
      I’m not sure exactly.. I’m sure it contains cotton but I suspect there is something else as well cause it has this silky feeling.
