Second post today. I’ve been in house-cleaning mode all day (I should be wearing a Lucille Ball head scarf), and I decided to take a break and get some photos of a blouse that’s been aging in the loft. So I can wear it 🙂
I love the Grainline Alder dress, it has such a nice silhouette, and it’s easy to modify. For this blouse, I decided to create a fold-and-gather detail for the back. Back details on garments intrigue me. IMHO, something should be interesting both coming and going.
Itty bits: I split the back and drafted it to have a fold with gathers in a lower skirt.
The fold is at the height of the bust dart and is 1″ deep. I added a couple inches to the bottom piece for the gathers.
Love this look. Kind of Audrey Hepburn. I think it would be fantastic on a dress version.
I wanted to take pics outside, but the rainy season persists. Wind, rain, but the garden and I are happy.
While doing all the terry cloth project clean-up, I realized I have more things to blog. I have had them hanging in the loft, and they’ve been neglected! Another day…
Bye for now – Coco
