The blouses are so comfortable, that I was constantly rotating them. I wash/dry flat and grab & go, especially on the weekend. Even on the hottest day they are perfect and also protect my skin from the intense sun. My daughter mentioned last week that I really need to give it a rest. Mostly referring to the one I like to call my bohemian moment...lol
The blouses are gathered boat neck tops, worked up in a flowy fabric of sheer polyester. All the seams were serged, as well as the neckline, sleeve edges and the bottom of the blouse. To work with sheer fabric, sergers are worth their weight in gold, it makes construction so easy and eliminates the concern over fraying edges.
For hemming the blouses I just fold the serged edge to the inside and final stitch. In most instances, I will fold twice and final stitch to encase the stitches... did I say I luv my serger....lol
In constructing each blouse, I've omitted the casing and ties for the neckline and instead used 1/4" clear elastic. With the neckline and sleeve edges serged, I fold the fabric over the elastic and stretch as I sew to gather the neckline and sleeves and then fold to the inside once more and final stitch.
Do you have a pattern that has been repeated numerous times and if so, what characteristics of that garment makes it a repeater?
