Palo Alto, Calif...
Simplicity 3835. Linen with self-made bias tape trim. Cut size 10 back, size 12 front, shaved 1/4" off each side seam at the waist to take the entire blouse in by 1" at the natural waist for a more fitted look, therefore had to insert a zipper into the back to get it on and off [but mostly off]. Blouse is shortened by ~2" from pattern piece. Lowered neckline by 3/4" to compensate for not making an elastic casing.
