I adapted the JJ blouse pattern to make this top from shirting material I’ve had lying around for ages. I drafted the peter pan collar myself using the tutorials on Gertie’s Blog for Better Sewing (which were utterly perfect!), bias taped the neck edging by hand and really took my time and enjoyed this process.
It needs one more button and I might re-do the sleeve edges but otherwise, I’m more than happy with it! More on my blog

Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
