I haven’t really worked with chiffon before so here is my first attempt! I have really wanted to make a chiffon blouse for a while and when I saw this polka dot fabric the blouse was already taking shape in my mind! I used 100% cotton to make the sleeve cuffs and collar to add some solid contrast. I left the skirt quite loose fitting and used a narrow hem to finish off the bottom. I drafted the pattern myself.
