SEWING TUTORIALS

OFF THE SHOULDER BLOUSE

September 9, 2016

I loved my off the shoulder Roscoe hack dress so much that I wanted to make a blouse too. I made it according to my instructions in this post, but cut it along the blouse length instead of the dress one this time. I also used a wider elastic (1.25 inch) this time because it’s what I had on hand and I really like the way it looks. I of coarse made a wider casing to accomodate it too.

For the fabric, I used some ivory colored tencel that I bought at Joanns. This fabric is thick enough to not be see through, but still thin enough to have a nice drape. Love this fabric.

Because I wanted this blouse to be a good transitional fall and spring top, I decided to keep the sleeves pretty long. I am hoping that I can get some wear out of it before it gets too cold here.

    I really like the wider elastic I think it’s a more sophisticated look! You should get quite a bit of wear out of it!

      thank you! I agree. I think the wider elastic is a bit more grown up.

      thanks! I love it when I can find a white fabric that isn’t see through.

    So lovely! Light, airy and cool 🙂 I’ve always loved off the shoulder tops too but I could never wear them – my bust is just too much 🙂 which means I have to wear a well constructed bra and it just doesn’t work with bra straps.
