BWOF 10/2004, #114 pattern.
I wanted to sew a dress, but ended up hating it – it didn’t look well on me. However, I loved the top part so I cut off the skirt part and got a lovely blouse.
The pattern is basically the same as for my Gold blouse. I didn’t cut the fabric on bias, as the pattern instructions suggested (maybe that’s the reason my dress didn’t turn out well), and I didn’t make long slits on sleeves. The rest of the blouse was altered the same way as my Gold blouse.
