I had a bit of satin laying around and found a scrap of tulle that was left over from shortening a dress and so this blouse was born. I used the same pattern as I did for my first project, however, I didn’t have enough material to cut on a bias. Instead I added an invisible zipper to the back (thanks for your help, Mom!) as well as bust, front and back darts to give some shape. The collar and sleeves are made from tulle; the sleeves are finished off with lingerie elastic.
What do you think of these summery styles?
