As this was my first true shirt blouse. I took it really slow as it has all the tricky elements for a beginner like me, pattern matching, splits in the sleeve for the cuffs, hidden buttons and 2 part collar; few. My Mum guided my through and I learnt a lot about tacking, especially where you press a seam allowance and it bounces back! I wanted an oversized shirt that draped and could be worn open or closed and I have it. I shortened the sleeves and added a little length as I did want to cover my tummy fully.
