My sister had this fabric for a long time. It is a shifon-like and probably polyster-made from 70's. She had 3 meters of this fabric and asked me to sew a dress. But I suggested to make a blouse, because the print and colours are quite bold and a dress would have had far too much horde!
I had this design in my mind for a while; a V-shape neckline blouse with tie collar which is only attached to the back of the neckline in order to be playful and versitile.
For this blouse, I used my own pattern. I sewed it using my mum's old Hosqvarna sewing machin. I used French seam technique and snaps for front and cuffs closur.
The tie tails are loose in front and can be palyful.
You can leave it in a care-free catual state:
Or make a tie close to neck:
Or, a tie away from neck like a Vshape neckline it is:
Alternatively, use a ring to hold it on place:
Possibilities are endles!
The construction is quite simple; I cut the tie on bias and attached it only to the back neckline.
I am very happy with the result and my sister seems to like it too.
