I have very few basic white blouses so I stitched up this Violet blouse (via Colette Patterns) to fill the gap in my wardrobe.
The blouse is made of bamboo and has a lovely drape, although its very prone to fraying. I added a small ruffle trim around the peter-pan collar as well as sewing my own buttonholes with some buttonhole silk twist.
Bamboo fabric for blouse, silk buttonhole twist, lightweight interfacing for collar
