When finished, this blouse will have puffed, wrist length sleeves. I haven’t attached them yet because I need to make organza sleeve heads. You can see stay-stitching around the armholes to stop them from stretching when the sleeves are sewin in. The collar ties also need a good pressing.
Fine polyester knit, organza for the interfacing. I decided to use organza because it’s light but stiff enough to keep the puffed sleeves in shape. The centre front (where the buttons go) also has organza interfacing.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
