Ruffle Sleeve Blouse

Ruffle sleeve is on trend now, so I decided to make this blouse for myself and I love it. For the pattern, I modified the dress pattern H from Casual Sweet Clothes by Noriko Sasahara and for the fabric, I used the leftover Korean cotton from previous garment. 
The original dress pattern has v-neckline and finished the sleeve with two pieces of ruffles, you can see my dress version here. And as I want a round neckline blouse and a little bit fuller ruffle sleeve, I have to change the pattern pieces, 
  • Raised the center front 5.5 cm and drew a new line of round neckline, the back neck remains the same.
  • Made the neckline facing for both front and back.
  • Cut the length of the dress bodices right on the fuller hips.
  • Omitted the zipper 
  • Reduced the sleeve length 5 cm and added ruffle sleeve 10 wide x 56 cm long.
The sewing process was enjoyable, because I always felt relax when I sew 😊 The ruffle sleeve was gathered with two lines of stitching/basting using sewing machine after I sew both sides together and hem it. And then slowly, I pulled the threads and spread evenly along the sleeve. 
Pin and sew the ruffle onto the sleeve and removed the basting threads. As shown in the picture below,

The neckline was finished with facing, I used 1.5 cm seam allowances in all edges, 1 cm sleeve hem at the ruffle and 2 cm hem allowance. Also, it was a good decision to omit the zipper because the neckline is big enough to pull my head in and out 😃

And glad that I wore this blouse this afternoon with me-made Culottes from last year for mmmay'17 day 30. We visited Galaxy Macau for a walk and enjoyed public holiday. 
Well, time flies so fast and we are in day 30 of Me Made May 2017. I was thinking to publish a weekly outfits that I wore but I changed my mind, I will be posting the round up of the whole month. But you can take a look at my everyday outfit on my Instagram
Happy Sewing!
