We Are Sailing III – Loralie Blouse

A good day with few interruptions means that the second Nautical-themed blouse is now completed. I used McCalls 2797 for the princess seamed bodice and shaped hemline, but added a shawl collar from McCalls 6438 and my own drafted short sleeves (referred to as a “Loralie” blouse). This time around I have made the rever shaping into points as I thought it would be more appropriate than the rounded version. I top-stitched the collar and have also top-stitched the facings into place. Buttonholes are again stitched in White to blend in with the print and the buttons are in Nautical  Blue.

I have very little of the fabric left, maybe just sufficient to make a toilet bag. As I purchased this fabric such a long time ago it feels as though this outfit has cost me nothing except my time, what I call a “Result”!
