welp! my new dress form arrived yesterday (love you, Amazon! so quick!) and I thought it was about time I got my shit together and made something of this blog. I’ve got a massive backlog of crap I’ve made that I’d like to get up here eventually, but I’ll start with just one.
I used Burdastyle.com’s peasant blouse pattern, although I modified it quite a bit to my liking. I made the neckline a drawstring and cut the sleeves short, and I lengthened the torso, using the selvedge as a hem. I used cotton voile, which I just love, for this shirt. the torso pieces are doubled up, and the sleeves are a single layer. this is the perfect summer shirt for me – light and breezy, can be dressed up with jeans or worn loose and free over a bikini. it also, though not period correct, could be used as a chemise when I ever get around to working on my costumes again. I feel like making a half dozen more so that I have a full set 😀
