I made this blouse once before in white, intended for a wardrobe staple. Well, more as an emergency matchable item than as a staple, since I rarely wear plain white - it's too ghostly for me.
I liked the fit of the first version, and I thought I'd wear a print version more often.
I was nearly done stitching this up, had it arranged on my ironing board ready for placket facings when an unpleasant feeling of recognition washed over me. Where have I seen this before? Oh dear, this looks just like those grotesuqe gowns I found myself wearing in the maternity wards! Granted, my shirt doesn't fasten by 2 unhelpful ties in the back nor have equally unhelpful "slits" here and there, but the color and pattern may be a bit too much. What do you think?
