It was a relatively straightforward make, only 4 steps to the pattern (although these vintage patterns do seem to cram a lot into each step I find) I struggled a bit with the collar but then I always seem to struggle with collars.
Why are these so many different ways to sew a collar? I'm sure someone more advanced than myself would probably use their own technique each time but I don't feel confident enough not to follow the pattern instructions to the letter.
I finished it off with 4 plain black glass buttons, again from the button lady at Spitalfields market.
Collar close-up shown below. It's not too bad I know, and perfectly wearable but I'm such a perfectionist and I don't like the fact that you can see the stitching where it joins the blouse.
This has filled a big gap in my wardrobe and I now have so many more outfit options thanks to a simple black blouse.
