I love the Alexander Blouse, but I should have read the instructions before beginning! There are lots of mistakes in it, there is a shoulder-seam where it should not be, for example, and the button-holes are going into the wrong direction, and …
But I love it! I finished it in summer and wore it often, so when I wanted to publish it, it needed to be washed and ironed.
The fabric is a wonderful light batiste, the buttons are vintage. I found them in Waltraud’s fabric store shortly before they closed. I miss her and the store so much!
