Yes, it's another Violet blouse! I'm happy to say that I'm much happier with this version than with my previous Violet . I'm not going to do a proper review, as I'm pretty sure this blouse has been comprehensively covered on every sewing blog, so this is just an overview.
In brief, I added 1.5 inches to the length and added a vertical dart on each side of the front to try and make it more fitted. I used a striped polycotton (I think) from a charity shop that cost about £3 and used covered buttons.
I'm pretty happy with how this blouse turned out but I still haven't quite cracked the fit. You might notice a little wrinkling in the upper chest/bust area. I think this is the same issue I had with my Peony dress, as removing some excess fabric from the same area would have helped with my issue with the neckline of the dress. Can anyone advise on this? Do I need to do a small bust adjustment?
So while I feel that I have banished the demons of my last horrible attempt at Violet, it's not an out-and-out victory.
Finally, a picture of me trying to make a squirming cat pose for a photo. She wouldn't.
