I’m not a big wearer of blouses, I find them generally uncomfortable and am always worried about them unbuttoning by accident and somehow they’re just not me. Then I saw this blouse in an Anthropologie catalog that had raglan sleeves and this wonderful detail, so I thought I could do my own version and for extra comfort I used stretchy fabric. I like it very much, the only problems are the armholes and upper sleeves – they’re a little big because I used a jacket pattern as a base (BWOF 03/08 jacket #104 – same as my 2nd creation). Next time I’ll have to fix that. All in all I love the blouse though!
Some kind of knit gorgeous fabric I got a the Greuter Jersey factory store in Switzerland. Snaps from Sewbaby.com
me for makin’ it mine and Anthropologie for soooo many gorgeous ideas to inspire me (I added two images of the blouse that inspired this blouse)
