For this blouse I used the vintage Butterick 7592 pattern.
The pattern’s original collar is the little aqua one, but I thought the blouse needed something “extra” and I added the white collar below it for some depth. The white collar is exactly 1″ wider than the aqua one.
One thing I hate is having thick seams on light blouses, or on anything for that matter. My blouse is a very light weight, drapey cotton and with having 2 collars it would result in having 6 seam allowances, not including interfacing (blouse, collars, plus facing). My home-grown solution to this is to use silk organza as the undercollar.
