Scrap Buster

I used the Liesl and Co. Pattern "Breezy Blouse" to make a light summer shell. I first sewed enough of some of my favorite scrap material together to have enough fabric to fit the front pattern piece.

The shoulders were size 12 graded out to size 16 at the waist and hips. I dropped the bust darts 1 inch. I went back after assembling the sides and made a mark a 1/2 inch from where the mark is to show where to sew the side panel to the back panel and drew a line (green) to flow into the seam line from it. I was afraid to alter the pattern thinking that if I baisted it in my blouse, I could take it back out if it didn't work.

But I think it made the fit better (for me).

This pattern will be really easy now that I have made a couple of muslins and made it fit for me.
