My friend Julie gave me a metre of this fantastic fabric and I decided it would definitely have to become a prim blouse, preferably with pussy bow. Put some sweet buttons on for added contrast. Very pleased with the result!
The pattern is Blouse 1 from Machiko Kayaki’s book Simple Chic. The Japanese do prim like no other… The pattern was not difficult and the instructions easy to follow despite the book being in Japanese. I’d say this is suitable for an intermediate because you do need to have a little experience with patterns to be able to interpret the book, but the pattern itself is easy.
1m of printed cotton, 6 buttons, thread.
