sketched and drafted this blouse myself after inspiration from 1940s fashions. It has a heart shaped yoke with pleats on the bodice part. the lower section is a semi-circle attached at the wait. it has a keyhole in the back with a nice button and there is also ties to pull it in at the waist. It started out as a dress with a hemline in the middle of my thighs but because i cant pull the waist of it in (because it makes the pleats open up too much) it felt too frumpy to i made it a blouse which will hopefully be more wearable. I made it about 2 months ago and still haven’t worn it, i think also cos the colour was a bit too blah as a dress.
