Using remnants of poly/cotton from a superking-sized duvet cover originally purchased several years ago, I count this garment as a ‘freebie’. The print is a little drab but should be a foil against some of my bold-coloured skirts, trousers and dungarees.
I cut the pattern as per the adjustments made previously that include adding ½ inch to the side seams and adding 3 inches to the length of the shaped hemline. I would have preferred to add more to the length but was constrained by the size of the remnant pieces of fabric.
The fabric was easy to cut out, press and stitch which makes the entire process of construction a joy.
My JUKI overlocker was used to finish the seam allowances. The hem was first neatened with the overlocker before being turned twice and top-stitched in place.
After 4 hours of stitching, five mother of pearl shell buttons for closure at the front and this Libby #8 blouse is complete.
