Jasmine blouse pattern from the autumn patterns of Colette patterns.
My first take on a blouse pattern. I decided that I wanted longer ties, so I lengthened the ties by 10 cm. The fabric is very thin, so I used a satin bias band to finish the neckline instead of a facing. I took the sleeves slightly in and used the cuffs of the other version to finish them. The length was just perfect, since I (almost) never tuck my blouses in. If I did I would add length. After making my first muslin I decided to try to go a size smaller than my measurements indicated on the chart and it still fits perfect! (I added one picture of the second muslin) I definitely recommend making a muslin for this.
I used a synthetic fabric, just because it is so easy to throw it in the washing machine with other stuff. Before cutting the fabric I used cornstarch to make it a bit stiffer. I documented how I did it on my blog http://www.justskirtsanddresses.blogspot.com
