I found a yard of this poly-crepe chiffon in a remnant pile at Joannes for a dollar and some change, and immediately got giddy! It was the perfect fabric to do a knock off J Crew blouse that has been sitting on my desktop for some weeks. It is a basic one piece cap sleeve cropped blouse with gentle V-neck in the front and back.
I finished it with a turned bias binding, which is the first time I have used this technique. It was fairly simple and similar to a basic bias binding, assuming I did it correctly!
The hems look uneven, but that is due to the elasticity and lightness of the fabric.
More information about the pattern, technique, and inspiration shirt can be found here
I really look forward to wearing this as a base layer under a blazer or cardi, and tucked into high-waists this Fall!
I used the bodice from pattern B in Stylish Dress Book volume 3.
