I really loved the idea of making a blouse that was more ‘dashing’ than shirty and something you could wear day or night. I used Burdastyle Hi-Low blouse as a base and borrowed various parts from other patterns. Basically I frankensteined the whatsit out of it until I had the blouse I was imagining with a cute understated collar, placket sleeves, a curved hem and self cover buttons. I used a wild woodland critter printed silk crepe de-chine from spoonflower as the main and a black silk for the colorblocking. And last of all I added a big pieced triangle in the back, which was really a lot harder than it looked. Anyway, I really love the result…it’s the perfect mix of classic and fun!
