The Portrait Bluse from “Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing”
The best part of the blouse is the fabric: a lovely delicate mixture of silk and cotton. Also, it has little strawberries on it, but it’s difficult to see in the photos.
I chose not to add the side zipper, since I was able to put the blouse on without it.
I had to skip the facings, because the fabric was too sheer.
