This blouse is a bit of an experimental piece. It started life as the Burda Tie-Front Blouse, but was so huge and unflattering on me I did a bit of tinkering. The sleeves got ripped out and the shoulders were big enough to make cap sleeves, which I finished with bias binding. I took the blouse in (a lot!) and used a few tucks and darts to shape it. It is pretty amateurish, but was great fun to play around with, and looks a bit better than the potato sack it was before ;)
