Chicago, United ...
This is my version of Zyanya’s butterscotch blouse. It took me forever to draft out, and everything went wrong. I didn’t realize that the pleats had to be sewn down, so I did that after I’d already attached the yoke, so there’s gaps at the top and bottom where I couldn’t reach. Then, the front and the back didn’t match up. Oops.. and then, it was way too short, and since I was running out of material I cut the peplum in a semi-circle, mostly on the bias. As a result, it sticks out. A lot. Once I added an extra band around the bottom, it didn’t look quite as bad, but it still juts out strangely.
