The Azalea that Wasn’t

The Danielle pattern is a favourite of mine (Here and here) and this was yet another go at making a quick blouse. The fabric, a printed cotton fabric, was originally intended for a double layered dress (The Azalea), but when I couldn’t find a good fabric for the second layer the first fabric became a blouse instead. The only alteration is the length of the pattern.

With this attempt I’m really pleased with the pouffiness of the sleeves, I used a wider rubberband for the end of the sleeves for this version than I did for the dress and also, more importantly, I used a tighter fitting rubberband. I’m learning something new with every go!
