So my first blouse is now completed and delivered to the client!
For the first blouse I chose to place one embroidery design on the front right side, the second is on the back right side. I wanted to attain a movement of the two decorative pieces.
Again because the decorative pieces were so close to the selvage I had to alter my pattern. For this project it was simpler to flat-pattern the blouse, and I took it from there.
The front contains two center-front piece at breast level, one containing the decorative piece with a front closure of one button. Below the breast-line I had to break up the front pattern piece for the placement of the decorative piece.
For the collar I thought it would be nice to use a mandarin collar . Being that the fabric is from Vietnam, I wanted to give the over all design a nice fresh feel! The back contains a center-back seam and the other decorative piece on the right back shoulder.
One project completed, one more to go!!
