To get you inspired, here are a few blouses we have displayed at Treadle right now. This first one in red shirting is from a Katherine Tilton pattern, Butterick 6325, and features asymmetric details and an interesting collar pleat.
This Japanese cotton double gauze blouse (McCall's 6124) has a smooth, figure-skimming fit due to front and back princess seaming. Perfect for wearing under cardigans and jackets!
Want something quick and simple? McCall's 7360 is a half-buttoning pullover with a boxy, relaxed fit. This lavender Swiss dot fabric makes it springy and sweet!
This one shows a great use of printed cotton lawn. Not too many seams to break up the large print, and a longer cut that flows softly over the body. Made from McCall's 7327, it also has a lovely self-bias neck binding and asymmetric layers at the hem.
