London, United K...
I knew instantly that I wanted to make up the blouse version of the Deer and Doe Reglisse dress that I pattern hacked last summer after making and loving the dress. This blouse also has a 1920s/1930s feel to it that I felt worked really well with this particular fabric.
In order to convert the dress pattern to a top I extended the blouse from the waist to the length I wanted and I also removed the bust darts as I knew that this would be the type of top I would want to make in very delicate fabrics that I always feel work best without darts if at all possible.
I really like this pattern, and realistically it is far more use to me as a blouse than a dress due to my lifestyle and the climate here in London- both of which have me in jeans nearly every day of my life! In the black silk it is of course more of an evening top but one I think I could probably wear all year around!
