Sew Lisette (Simplicity) 2211. Blouse, view E.
Tilda cotton, 1m.
I didn’t put gathers in the sleeves; instead, I used pleats. I think it looks nicer! The sleeve band is quite snug. I would probably add 1-2cm more ease if I were making it again. The pattern is also short. I lengthened it by 3cm and made a narrower hem and still find it short. Still, it’s comfortable and wasn’t too difficult.
ETA: the sizing on the pattern runs quite large. I’m a 33" bust and cut out the size 14 to find it was gigantic. Ended up using the size 6!
