I was reinspired this week by vintage chemises. There's enough trim to make a square yoke for the blouse front. A blouse will be sewn under and around the trim from bleached muslin. I'll take photos tomorrow, when the sun's out.
My other project is tweaking a purchased blouse. It's made from cotton voile with pintucking and lace insertion. I love the Edwardian lingerie dresses and this is as close as I'll get in daily life. The blouse has no waist shaping so I'm going to sew on a back tie. The short sleeves are a little too puffy for my taste. Luckily a pleat will solve that and look well with the gathers.
I hope this post whets your appetite for photos and progress rather than causing frustration. I promise more soon!
