The Taffy blouse from the Colette Sewing Handbook, this time made right! Sleeves and the correct suggested material included. I wasn’t sure about this blouse at first and thought the sleeves might overwhelm my frame, but it’s really growing on me. The secret to my success with this material vs. the first time I tried it? Spray starch. I starched the crap out of the material before I started even cutting!
