FO: Princess Seam Blouse/Shirt

FO: Princess Seam Blouse/Shirt

shirt finished front

More photos can be found at my Flickr “Sew? I Knit!” page here.

Fabric: An unlabelled, mixed-fibre, blue and white striped shirting from my grannie. The warp (or is that the weft?) is a synthetic and the weft (warp?) is a natural fibre.
Pattern: From an old issue of “Essentials” magazine. Pattern number E177
Modifications: Well – I modified the front pieces to accomadate my “boobage”, turned the 1 piece sleeve into a 2-piece so I could add width at the upper arm without altering the sleeve cap, I ended up using the attatched facing strip as extra frontage becuase it was still too tight on me without it! I cut a new facing crosswise on the fabric. I did the same at the back of the collar and collar stand.

  1. It looks SO good on you! VERY flattering! =)*) It ALMOST makes me want to bust out the sewing machine in my closet that doesn’t belong to me. 😉 almost, not quite — Maybe I’ll bust it out in a few weeks and make myself a dpn case? maybe not haha


  2. Your new blouse looks great!! You did a very good job with the adjustments. And it is very flattering. I must do some sewing too…. you inspire me to sew!!!


  3. Wow, the blouse looks great!!!
    Seems to fit just right too!
    And you even altered the pattern!

    Wish I had the courage and ability to sew a blouse like that…
