I made two of these blouses, last year.
A denim version
And a rayon one
This version is made from some linen/cotton mix I picked up, on sale, at Horsham Spotlight $6/m.
I purchased 4 metres and cut a shirt for Hugo, some woven Hudson pants for me and this!
To keep things simple, I omitted the cuffs and used some leftover rayon bias from Liddy's cold shoulder dress (to be blogged) to finish them.
The silky finish is very comfortable.
I scooped out the neck, by a few cms and used the same bias there
I didn't get a good photo of it but I omitted the side split too.
It made sewing the tiny double hem a bit fiddly but looks nice.
I am wearing it a lot!
It is like a t-shirt but dressier. It is very cool to wear as it falls away from my body and I am thrilled not to need a bust dart.

I rather like the look of the formal, silk satin t-shirt and I very tempted to try that look with this pattern.
Another nice, hard working piece for my capsule.
