White Blouse, Finally (SWAP 2)

Blouses and pants are three week affairs for me. There’s enough hand sewing and detailing to keep me busy. But, I FINALLY have a white blouse in BWOF 1-2008-106.

A tuexedo blouse no less. My clothing options have just like doubled.

I decided to be all fancy and use a different fabric for the inside collar and cuffs. I’ve seen this in J.Crew and Burberry. I’m also still me and an all white blouse was hard for me to swallow. I did do the upper most buttonhole in a pale shade of pink.

I have already used Scotchguard on the blouse because I would like it to last as long as possible. I also handsew on all my buttons. No fancy French seams for me. I just serged everything.

Somehow I managed to not put my button over the bust. I’m not sure what happened. I clearly recall putting on the blouse and marking it.

It would definitely make this again. It’s basic and needed. It’s also the same shape as another blouse in the January edition I made over the summer, #105.

Fabric from a friend over the summer. It’s 100 percent Egyptian cotton. Buttons can be found at this eBay store.
Next up, palette cleansing easy skirt.
