This blouse took FOREVER! Because this blue silk is just so scrumptiously light and airy I did most of my it by hand. Its my second Colette Sencha, but modified to have a bias binding on a boat neck. I used silk organza for the interfacing. Lots of construction details here. I also used vintage glass buttons for the back. I’m including a closeup of the hand stitching I did on the inside of the bias binding. I’m rather proud of it!
