I made this blouse for my 2nd semester shirt project (design, draft, sew, everything) and the process drove me into a nervous breakdown etc. etc. so I don't love it like I should. But even though I finished it at the last minute (I'm talking about sewing in the buttons during a drafting lecture right before it was due) I somehow managed to scrape up an A- on it. I'm guessing my instructor was feeling really, really generous. The pants were made back when I was still in the 12th grade (last year haha), from a commercial pattern.









oh, and this is why it's "backwards":


The sleeves aren't perfect because I was having some ease sewing issues and I have to re-sew some buttons on so that the plackets will lie flatter, but other than that I'm pleased with it.

A+ for a stylish original shirt!

I really like all of the elements - the peter pan type collar, the waistline, and of course the ruffles down the bodice - everything works together fabulously

you really should LOVE this...it looks so nice on you and your workmanship is top notch!  I really don't like sewing under stress, either....so I do know what you mean with this driving you insane!  It really is very nice and the design is awesome.  A+ would be my grade for you!   Smiley
