Chiffon Bow Blouse

I made this shirt in a few hours a few weekends ago, I used my basic bodice for this, and about a meter and a half of poly chiffon from my stash.
It’s kind of difficult to see the details of this shirt because of the busy fabric (it’s little leaves!) so I’ll give you a recap. I transferred the darts to gathers in the shoulder seam and gave the shirt a baggy look by widening the side seams by about an inch. The sleeves are basically the same width the whole way down (rather than tapering towards the wrist) which I gathered at the wrists and finished with bias binding. The sleeve caps are also gathered which took a little longer to sew with chiffon and IT’S SO FREAKING SLIPPERY but worth the effort (but maybe not.. can you ever tell they’re gathered? This pattern is so confusing)
For more information on all the mistakes I made while making the shirt, how I constructed the collar and other insights I had into the world of sewing (and non sewing) you can check out my blog post
