Cesky Brod, Czec...
The second of the two stretchy, knit blouses I made for my eldest sister (I still do not have proper photos of the first one). I made the pattern myself, based on the Mrs Stylebook sloper and her own ideas of what she wanted it to look like (= wide, gathered neckline, half-length bell sleeves). She wears them all the time… the best thanks I could get.
(It fits her wonderfully, however still, it rides up in the back a bit – do you think there’s a way to fix that in the pattern for future projects?)
It’s more of an early sping/autumn/winter quality – the fabric’s quite thick and she was already hot in it today (it was a very hot day).
Also, it’s handsewn. That’s because I doubted my sewing machine would tackle the knit properly.
knit blend – poly-something (I do not remember anymore), cotton, elastan; rattail cord (probably rayon) gathering the neckline
