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.
