Description

This is view B of the Alma blouse from Sewaholic patterns. I used a Japanese double gauze border print (called Peaceful Cooing, hence the name!) and am really pleased with how the contrast collar has turned out. Apart from some slight grading of sizes around the bust and hip areas, the only change I made to the original pattern was to shorten the sleeves by about five inches.
It’s a great pattern and I’ll definitely be making more versions. More construction details and pictures on my blog
