A very easy blouse for beginners. Vary fabric selection for work or casual options. Blouse is very long – I shortened it enough to wear tucked into skinny jeans or out for a layered look under sweaters. Warning: Cuff directions called for a 3/4 " overlap so I mistakenly extended ends on both sides which resulted in a rather snug fit. next time I will only extend it on the front/top/button hole side. In addition – I am thin with a strong shoulder frame and they really filled out the raglan style sleeve . I have found the 38’s a bit big so I tried a 36 this time and was really cutting it close – so to speak- in the shoulder area. I used vintage plastic/celluloid buttons. Next time will try in a vintage tee fabric or a silk. great for layering in the winter. comfortable. I machine wash it on hand wash setting and line dry in about 30 minutes – no need to iron.
Very lightweight cotton, vintage buttons
