This week I sewed up the fifth and sixth items for my True Bias Fall Capsule Wardrobe. You can see the entire plans in my blog post here if you don't know what I am talking about. This time I decided to sew up two Roscoe blouses. I have quite a few Roscoe blouses already in my closet so I decided to use the button front Roscoe hack from the Sew Tessuti Blog.
I won't go into the whole tutorial since Tessuiti already did, but essentially they have you add width to CF to accommodate a button placket and add a bit of height to the neckline as well. I would also add that you should add a bit of length to the neckline band to accommodate the button placket too. I forgot, so I made my button placket super skinny so it wasn't a big deal. In the future, I would make it wider.
The tutorial also advises you to slash and spread your sleeve for more volume at the wrist. I decided to skip this since I feel like the Roscoe already has a lot of sleeve volume.
I used two fabrics for my blouses. The rust colored fabric is a very lightweight cotton lawn. It has a slight sheen to it and is a bit on the see thru side, but that doesn't bother me. I adore this color and love how the cotton adds a bit of extra structure to this top.
The second fabric is a rayon crepe in ivory. I think this basic is going to get so much wear! It's soft, has lots of pretty drape, and feels like an upscaled workhorse for my closet.
That is it for today. You can find the Roscoe in both 0-18 and 14-30 in my shop here. Excited to keep going on my True Bias Fall Capsule Wardrobe next week where I get started on some pants.
