McCalls 6035 -- Part III
As the saga continued. I had enough fabric left to cut a new front piece. I sewed everything together and made buttonholes and attached the buttons. Somehow I goofed up the spacing on the buttonholes. I cut another piece of fabric and wrapped it over the misspaced buttonholes and sewed new ones.
When I was finally able to try what I thought was my finished product, I wound up with this.
Even though I used the pattern pieces for the D cup, look how it hikes up in the front. My fabric doesn't show it but the princess seam is just a few inches from the center front. Usually the princess seam is more towards the side. Now what? For some reason I couldn't give up on this blouse. I love the fabric and the sleeve detail.
I still had more fabric left so I cut the fronts off a little above the waist. Using the pattern pieces I added about 2 1/2" to the center fronts.
This is what the finished blouse looks like. It was worth all the work.
