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.
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.
