Description

Alexander blouse made with cotton lawn. I extended the front opening edges 5/8" so they would overlap, shaved 1/2" off the upper vertical edges of the front so the button edge would open at the neck, closed the back pleats into darts, and underlined the bodice of the blouse. You can read details on my blog (forgive me if my link coding is ineffective).

Material Notes

Cotton lawn underlined with cotton batiste

    Ooh – definitely the nicest version of this blouse I’ve seen. I particularly like the changes you made to the overlap, so there’s more of a ‘v’ at the top, and more of an overlap on the bottom half of the shirt. Fun fabric too!
