Blouse completed

The blouse finally completed. See how-to.

This is loosely styled on something I saw in a window in town.  The pattern was created from scratch (from observation of existing garments and a reference book – Shirtmaking: Developing Skills for Fine Sewing).   I’ll make the pattern available for download.

The frills on the front are added as a final step, so the same pattern can be used for a non-frills blouse too.

Initially I made this using silver poppers, but this didn’t pass muster with the wife.  So I have developed a technique for covering poppers in latex to match the garment.   I’ll post a page on this under Techniques.

The inspiration.
