I made this to wear underneath my new 1960s sleeveless dress as my arms are definitely not my finest feature (photos to come).

I’d love it if you came to visit my blog

    I think this beauty should not be hidden under a dress! But I’m curious anyway… ;) It’s great!

    Wow – this is lovely, lovely, lovely. I too have issues with my arms – so I so know where you’re coming from Sister!! Did you draft this pattern yourself? It’s gorgeous, I love the fact that there is a bow, but still a nice decolletage happening. You should be very proud & happy!

      Thanks so much, Nessy! Yes, I drafted the pattern myself (I avoid commercial patterns, unless someone gives me a particularly gorgeous vintage one).

    Oh yeah that fabric is so nice, I love the edges and the bow (it wouldn’t be yours without it), I’d love to see it under the dress xx

    I LOVE silk cotton. Is that batiste/voile? My machine is tempermental when I try to sew with it, but that fabric is so soft and smooth and light. Anyway, the shirt is lovely. I like the slight translucence and the raglan sleeves. Very nice.

      I also love silk cotton. I’m not sure what type it is. It’s not as thin as a voile, but not as thick as a batiste… It’s lovely whatever it is. My machine is also often temperamental, however it was fine with this.

    I do not see anything wrong with your arms hence I think the blouse is stunning and it suits you perfectly! I love the design, the colour (so gentle, fragile and romantic) and the petal like ties (a lovely detail). All in all – Fabulous! Now if you’ll excuse me, I am off to see your blog!
