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.
