Description

I adapted a blouse pattern Butterick 4985 to add a hood, and used up some ivory lace that had been in my stash for I-don’t-know-how long. The hood actually replaces the collar and is sandwiched in between the fronts and facing just like a collar would be. I really just treated the hood like a giant oddly shaped collar. I sewed the hood’s own centre seam in a French seam. The back neck edge is finished in a flat felled seam. The open edge of the hood is the selvedge of the fabric, which is a nice sealed flat edge already, making any further finishing unnecessary. . I drafted the sleeves to be a wide un-tapered tube, and I really like the loose casual flappiness of this new sleeve. I found the perfect buttons, ivory embossed with roses and flowers, that match perfectly the rose motif in the lace.
The shorts are Burda 7723 made exactly to pattern using white linen. Oh, except for the addition of rear pockets.
