Every time I set the sleeves into this blouse (New Look 6027), I am impressed with how well drafted they are and how easy they are to sew. Flutter sleeves are comfortable in the hot weather though they can be a little tricky to hem neatly. This blouse has nice shaping to it with a back seam instead of a foldline, and good shaping on the side seams so that even though it is a loose peasant-type blouse, it flatters the figure.The pattern calls for bias binding around the neckline, and I thought it needed a little color to tie it into the embroidery, so I sewed a line of chainstitch at the seamline. The embroidery design was purchased from Oregon PatchWorks and is called Elegant Florals 4 by the designer Sweet Heirloom Embroidery.
I have been thinking about making a white top with all black embroidery, or maybe mostly black embroidery with accents of turquoise. This could be because I just got my big cones of black thread in the mail this week and want to use some of it.
