I wanted a blouse that looked professional enough for work but would still allow me to move around (reach/ bend/ push/ pull/ lift) as needed. I love the classic look of a 40’s tie-front blouse but wanted something simpler. I went through several permutations before I settled on the final changes to the pattern. It has no closures. Light gathering on the front underbust. Back yoke comes over the shoulders to gathers on the front shoulders. Light gathering on the sleeves. Neck band/ tie is a straight piece seamed at CB.
