Today I bring you my Pink Floyd blouse, not that it has anything to do with the rock band other than the psychedelic. It was made from the M6649 McCall’s blouse pattern after a few modifications to my first version (muslin).
– Retract the top apex of the waist dart by 2″.
– Take in a ~2″ swayback by pinning out the excess fabric at the center back and tapering towards the side seams.
– Add 1/2″ width to the cap of the sleeve.
I made it in what I think is a rayon that my friend Abu brought for me from Afganistan. I love the fabric pinkness and the paisley print. This blouse is so light and flowy!
Adorable!! I feel great in it! I’ve received so many compliments wearing this blouse.
I love how the shape improved after the adjustments. I confess, I’ve converted to folded sleeve blouses.
From the picture below with the fully extended sleeves, do you think a cuff width reduction is in order?
Have you tried this or any other blouse patterns before? I’ve been so in love with the version that Sunni has created, I think you can expect a similar trend over here!
Are there any blouse patterns that you would recommend?
