So I put together this fantastic summer blouse over the weekend using an old simplicity pattern from 1953 and this beautiful cotton fabric from Yuwa's "Live Life" collection. The angle at which these pictures were taken is a little awkward (I was down the hill and my sister, the photographer, was up the hill) but I think you can get the basic feel of the blouse.
So far my favorite thing about this design is the shape of the front panels. Instead of coming down diagonally in a straight line, the fronts are a bit "L" shaped, to accomodate for a woman's natural shape. I have a wrap dress from Gap that drives me crazy sometimes (though I do love it) because the fronts cross over and get bunched up beneath my chest. Not very flattering.
Anway, I must log off and go to work. Sigh. Tis' life. Have a glorious day!
