Jennifer blouse (by Snaggletooth here on Burdastyle).
In order to accommodate my height, I always add length to garments. For this blouse, I added my standard 2" to the sleeves and 3" to the bodice. However, when I tried it on, the blouse was waaay too long. I lengthened each of the triplicate seams (two each on the front and back) and hemmed it to hip-length. This resulted in about 2" of fabric trimmed from the bottom.
The pintuck details on the sleeve cuffs and the bib placket insert require patience. Not for the faint of heart!
Cotton fabric from my grandmother’s church quilting group.
