I added a pocket to the front of the blouse because - well - who doesn't like a pocket!
The fabric is a doubleknit that I purchased at this year's Sewing Garage Sale. It's polka dot on one side and stripe on the other.
I really like the neckline on this blouse. It uses a double collar that is edged with a zipper!
Close-up of the zipper tape used as an edging.
Cutting out this blouse took a bit of thought to make sure I had the dots on the correct side and the stripes on the other side. I did find the arms to be a bit snug from the elbow to the wrist. If I make this again, I will widen the sleeves just a bit.
I decided to edge the pocket with the zipper tape too. Kinda cute!
Sorry this post has random thoughts here and there, but it was a random kinda day!
Here are the stashbustin' stats:
2 yards of sewing garage sale fabric for $5.00
Total YTD = 72.41 yards!
Happy sewing everyone!
