(Thank you for your votes on my last post, I came second and won three patterns)!
More camp sewing.A very snappy casual blouse from Lekala. Custom fit, of course.
Tilly chose this pattern, and at the time, I thought it a bit ordinary. After sewing it I have changed my mind.
I used the rest of the taupe linen/cotton I purchased from a Lincraft sale (the leftovers from Tilly's peasant blouse and Zara's Style Arc blouse to be blogged) and Tilly chose faux tortoiseshell buttons.
The neck, front and back facings and the sleeve and bottom hems are all interfaced and then finished with double layer so that they sit nicely.
I chose to top stitch the facings down. It finishes the garment nicely as well as making the garment easier to launder.
Matilda has a similar body shape to me, narrow shoulders with a full bust. It can make clothes shopping tricky.
