Violed shirt from Colette patterns recycled from an old maxi dress. The fabric is a very thin cotton- almost voile. I made a short version, just to check the fit. I made several alterations (my usual forward shoulder and narrow back alterations) and I could have taken the side seems in for a more fitted result. I like the style of the blouse, it’s an easy project and I can style it with many of my skirts and pants.
Around 1.2 m of cotton fabric.
