LOVE this boring costume - L
(I'm totally channeling Jenny from 'A Good Man Goes to War')
Why are sleeves so demonic?
I have decided to name the blouse Ripley. I watched Alien as I pinned and sewed.
Finally a picture of the pattern I used for this blouse. Remember, I changed the sleeves to full at the top with tapered, fitted forearm. Made the collar fit taller and more close to the neck. Added length, added to the bust, raised the darts and added pleats down the front. This is the only the second time I've flown this far off course with a pattern and not had a total melty. Also, who's idea was it to call a pattern 'Kwik Sew' that has a two piece collar, fitted darts, and cuffs?
