Here’s my next assigment. I’ll be using this B5463from Butterick:


Which is super close but no cigar —  it has the bateau neckline and is sleeveless and the armholes are finished with a narrow hem instead of facings.

BUT it doesn’t have bust darts or a cut-on facing for the neckline.


I figured I would add them myself

Then I remembered that I don’t know how to do those things, and this is not one of those useful tutorial-filled blogs, and I got out the tape

Bishop advises me to sew the blouse up in cotton because it is easy. I am foregoing that suggestion since I don’t want to make my own hospital gown. I’m going to use georgette as the pattern recommends and the Dead Doyenne Fabric I have on hand is an incredibly wonderful silk but the Dead Doyenne in question was a lot more groovy than I am so the print… well the print scares me

It is sort of awesome, but on somebody else, you know?

What do you think?
