Belcarra blouse from Sewaholic

1. Butterfly Belcarra


Pattern: Belcarra by Sewaholic
Fabric: Alexander Henry Oxford Butterfly Lawn, Black from Greys Fabric & Notions
Cut Sizing: 14 top to 16 waist
Details & deviations: All seams are flat felled- side vents added. Neck finished with bias tape.
Notes: Baggy, large crease from armscye to bust. Butterflies in headlight position... wearable.

2. FBA muslin attempt


 Unsuccessful. Dart was inches too low for bust. Must be steeply angled up to work. Gave up for now.

3. Galaxy Belcarra

For this attempt, I wanted a baggy, drapey shirt! I had a lovely galaxy print chiffon that is extremely sheer... I will be wearing a tank under the blouse. :)



Pattern: Belcarra by Sewaholic
Fabric: Digital galaxy print from Mood Fabrics, 2 panels.
Cut Sizing: 14 top to 16 hips (graded steeply near the bottom)
Details & deviations: All seams are french seamed, including sleeves (!).  Neck finished with bias tape.
Notes: Chiffon is hard to sew (but easier than habotai), new needle helped, pintucks are not quite aligned, sheerness works well with dark background, poly fabric generates static electricity and becomes clingy as well as sheer... annoying... find anti-static solution!
