Nautical Green Sleeveless Blouse

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Maggie's Blouse (Silhouette Patterns Link to website or photo silhouettepatterns.com/html/patterns/p_611.htm What are you most proud of? Though time consuming, I think the piping turned out well and was worth the effort. The fit is also very comfortable and I'm glad I kept tweaking the fit until I got it right. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the time to get the fit you're happy with so you'll want to make it over and over, in many different fabrics. Also figure out what proportions look good with your particular measurements. For, example, I'm very short waisted and not only did I have to shorten the length of the torso (neck to waist), but also between the shoulder to bust point. Don't hesitate to make the pattern your own. (I created a custom sleeveless armhole that fits me like I like. instead of using the pattern armhole which was better suited to a sleeve. If the piping detailing intimidates you, hand baste in place first. I also used bias tape around the armhole inside instead of a facing and elected not to line the blouse. I wear a camisole underneath; in this case, navy blue to match the piping. FYI: I found this fabric at JoAnn's Fabrics.
