I drafted this blouse myself. It has princess seams and a sort of shawl collar that I misdrafted because I had too little fabric and didn’t really think it through so the collar ended up being too small to go all around the neckline. Instead I left the collar open in the back and added a decorative button. The fabric, which I bought for very little money at a local fleamarket last summer, is very sheer and a little stretchy. So I made two layers, self and lining, out of the same fabric. Because of the fabric stretch and a lot of ease in the waistline I could do away with closures. Unfortunately the blouse is too summery to be worn at the moment, but summer will come eventually….
