Description

A loose pussy bow blouse with a nod to Maggie Thatcher ;) slightly puffed sleeve cap with folds.

All seams are French seams so there are no nasty frays or untidy seam allowances as the fabric is so sheer!

Material Notes

Synthetic chiffon(?! Please correct me if I am wrong…) I only had just enough to do the blouse as it was the end of the roll in the shop. Super hardcore fusible interfacing for the cuffs.

Credits

I used the blocks for the Ute & Jonny as a base:

Ute for the collar

Jonny for the top but I ignored the waist darts and straightened the side seams. The sleeves were widened by 1.5cm on either side of the seam – from cuff up to 5cm from arm scye, the cuffs are doubled in thickness.

    That’s an awesome blouse! Where did you find the fabric? I’ve been looking for something like it for a while but only seem to find pink polka dot fabric…
