I finally managed to draft myself a serviceable bodice block, and used it to make this little fitted blouse. It has a peter pan collar and closes with an invisible zipper down the center back. The zipper is inserted upside-down, opening from the hem, as I find it easier to zip that way, so I also made a little faced slit and added a button at the neckline so I can pull the blouse over my head.
The fabric is this great, very thin and soft cotton batiste that I picked up in the Nahalat Binyamin fabric market. It has a little green print on a black background. After making this I went back and bought it in another colorway (dark red on red).
I find this blouse very flattering and I am already working on the next couple of versions.
