How did the idea come about?
This blouse takes its inspiration from the looks in vogue in the 1960s (the swinging sixties), which overturned the geometric and rigorous striped dresses of the previous years to bring to the fore a more eccentric look where stripes were transformed to create optical illusions and optical effects.
A play of stripes, combined horizontally, vertically and diagonally at 45°.
A blouse composed of several cuts.
The boat neckline
Because it is feminine and summery
The wing sleeves
Because they are the easiest to sew and at the same time they are so summery.
The button on the opening at the back
It is an option that delights the eye because the head passes through anyway since the neckline is boat-shaped.
We sewed it in white and light blue but we would also like to see it in other colours, with brightly coloured stripes, for example, or in dark tones for an evening blouse...
A word of advice: go for the exact size, don't overdo it because it is only right that this blouse fits true to size and not large.
As a fabric, choose a cotton with a little stretch (3-5%).
The cotton holds the shape well without falling. You could try making it with a jersey but the end result will be much softer and the neckline and sleeves may suffer.
You will need 1.5 m of fabric (1.5 m high).
Here is the pattern for cutting: perform this step very precisely; the more precise you are in following the pattern, the better the optical effect of the stripes will be.
