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….
You can read more about my blouse and see some more pics on my blog.
