Despite being an unprinted pattern, I found all the directions and actual construction to be fairly easy. This was a lot of 'firsts' for me: first unprinted pattern, first pleats, first gathers, first buttonholes, first covered buttons, first hem, and my first set-in sleeves. I definitely plan on using this pattern again and again!
The sleeves have these great little pleats on them:
There are pleats at the bottom front and back which makes it super easy to tuck this blouse into pants or a skirt. The pleats on the back also give a bit of a pouffy look to the back which I think is great:
And I covered the buttons in the front with the same fabric:
Ah, I love it!! Now I feel inspired to make a 1940's skirt in a matching color (purple??)
