After the success of patchwork blouse 1, I was inspired to proceed with patchwork blouse 2. This time I used two packs of 1/2 yard collections purchased from Lady Sew and Sew, Marlow, Bucks. I originally made the blouse with 3/4 length sleeves into a narrow cuff. I wore the blouse just once and discovered how annoying it is when sleeves get caught into the insides of your elbows! Back home I cut the sleeves and inserted yet another strip of fabric to lengthen the sleeves. Final result photographed below.
