Light summer blouse in printed cotton voile. Before cutting my fabric I reduced the pattern size to approx 44. I sewed shut the front pleats and trimmed off the excess fabric. Once it was all assembled I used the top sleeve seam to bring the whole thing up and into place for my height. Didn’t use contrasting fabric for the neckband, just topstitched interfaced peices into place. Went without the zipper, too – it’s loose enough to pull on over my head.

Material Notes

160cm fabric (150cm wide) with ample to spare
