Description

I was inspired by the “Lettuce Florets Blouse” from Anthropologie and decided to recreate it by combining and altering several patterns that I have. I used BurdaStyle’s Jocelyn top pattern for the bodice, but made the front into two pieces so that it could button down the front. I also used Burda 7914 for the collar, armholes, and shoulder seams. I made homemade bias tape for the armholes using a floral contrasting fabric, and decided to use the same floral fabric for the underside of the collar.

Material Notes

Main polka dot fabric and floral contrast are both light weight cottons from the $1.50/yard section at Walmart! The white fabric on the collar is a bottomweight from JoAnns
