This is a straight forward pattern, easy to construct, and with an interesting bubble shape close to the hem. For me I’m not very hip on the pleats so close to my neck as it cause the blouse to expose when bending down and it’s not where I want to have fullnes in my blouses. This was made with a Liberty of London cotton tana lawn this spring. In spite of my concerns with the blouse, the fabric makes me happy and it mixes well with prior sewing projects—a sweater made last winter and a cotton jacket made several years earlier.
