JJ bodice pattern combined with sleeves from the Patrones blouse.
I pleated the central front pieces – added 4 pleats on each side, and I pleated the sleeves. The sleeve pleats end just above the elbows. The blouse turned out a bit snug in shoulders – the bodice-sleeves combination wasn’t as successful as I hoped it would be. However, I like the blouse very much.
An interesting detail is that this blouse was on its way of becoming an UFO – I started sewing it back in March, and stopped after noticing a minor problem with the collar. Yes, it was a minor problem, but it required unpicking a lot of seams, and I wasn’t in a mood that! Finally, the lousy weather in Europe (it has been under 10C over here!) moved me to finish the blouse and wear it! Yay!
