      This is my first post at Completed Projects. I thought would be nice to share.
      I used my pillow as a model  Grin, since I do not have a dress form.
      I like the way it is. But, maybe you guys can give me more ideas for a new one Smiley
Perach Cheesy

 Wink Thank you guys for being so inspiring and helpful  Smiley

Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Tutorial  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

 Smiley Sew the seams at the V neck
 Smiley Sew part A to part B
 Smiley Construct darts - front and back
 Smiley Sew the lace at the front (Use stitch from AB connection as a guide  Wink ). Tuck in the ends to the inside of the blouse
 Smiley Sew the ties at the same hight as the lace in the front - tuck ends also to the inside of the blouse
 Smiley Sew the blouse at shoulders
 Smiley Sew blouse on both sides
 Smiley Creating the armhole with shaped facing. Put pieces D/E over A (and C) (maching shape) - right side of the fabric facing each other. Baste them, clip the curve, to avoid pucking. Sew, then fold D/E in. Press and sew around the edge.
 Cheesy Hem the botton of the blouse
 Cheesy Hem the back part on the blouse at the neck.

Grin Tips Grin

  Use pins and basting stitches to create a good fitting
  Press the folds and seams. This will help to keep things in place and gives you a good finish.
I hope the instructions and the drawings that I create are ok. Please feel free to ask questions!
Good luck and have fun!!!!

I hope I use all the proper terms  Grin
