I self-drafted the pattern for this blouse from a Korean-made top I bought last year (in Singapore). I have included an image of the original top in orange here for you to see.
The fabric is a white dobby spot cotton which is quite light and semi-transparent. I decided to make the top double layered, which meant I could that the second layer as a facing and hide the neck and arm seams. I left the two layers separate at the bottom to allow some movement. While the original top didn’t have darts, (it’s a poly) I found that with the cotton I needed to add additional shaping.
The blouse has a scooped hem.
