Description

My sewing goal for the summer is to make more blouses, so here is my first try. I picked up a bunch of random pieces of fabric from SCRAP in SF on a recent visit and thought this blue cotton would be good for a top. I’d also been wanting to try out JJ’s bodice sloper pattern, so the blouse came together from there! When I made up the pattern as is, I realized how short it is so I added a peplum made out of a large circle of fabric. I put pearly white buttons up the back, and gathered the ends of the peplum so that they would overlap in the back. I think I’ll need to tweak the fit of the pattern a bit on my next project, but I’m happy with how this blouse turned out – it’s definitely different from anything else I have in my wardrobe!
