This blouse is an upcycle. It was originally Burda Slouchy Blouse 4/2010 which was part of my “getting back into sewing” plot from 2010 in which the plot succeeded, but the original project was a fail. It was just way too loose and boxy. It flattered me not at all. So this time, I used a pattern that my Abuelita and I used to make shirts for me when I was a teenager.
⁃ Pattern: McCall’s 2094
⁃ Year: 1999
For next time, starch the batiste… my machine loved to eat this fabric despite trying 3 different size needles. I’ll try starching it to give it more body next time. The batiste is so soft and has such a nice hand, I can’t help but run into it again.
⁃ Fabric: Swiss Dot Batiste
⁃ Notions: 1 button, 1/4 yd interfacing
⁃ Time to complete: 8-10 hours
