The original pattern uses all lace and is lined, but I didn’t have enough fabric so I only made the yoke transparent and did the rest i black silk. This blouse has a rather voluminous shape and is kinda big in the front, a little too big for my liking perhaps. But still the style is really distinct and a stylish way to use lace.
One issue that I had is that the waistband and the lower front pleats which doesn’t align with the upper pleats. As for the waist band I did it a little wider than the pattern and stabilized it with silk organza which made a huge difference for the overall look.
