Our blouse is feminine, with a downtown edge. This style flatters the torso while accentuating the waist with a drawstring and gathered skirting. If sewing silk seems daunting, use cotton the sewing process will be much more forgiving. For the trim, try pulling inspiration from vintage chemises and use a contrasting color, like tan velvet on a cream-colored silk blouse.
1 3/4 yard (1.6cm) fabric, 55" (139.5cm) wide. Zipper, lightweight fusible interfacing, elastic, ribbon or trim and a safety pin.
