This is one of my favorite blouses of late! the fabric was a dream to work with and even thought it’s 100% poly, it feel really nice on the skin! I drafted this pattern myself, I don’t know if you can tell but this is the same silhouette as the Cat Blouse, I actually love that the fabric is so different from the cat cotton that the silhouette looks quite different!
I had quite a think trying to figure out how to connect in tot the shirt. In retrospect, maybe incoperating it into a pleat might a been a good idea but I didn’t want to have to do too much drafting. I decided to create a little traingle, which in my opinion gives it a kind of tribal arrow look that I like.
