Saw this article in local paper, someone can post?
You can Google, as it's been in many papers.
Has anyone seen this item mentioned--the T-shirt blouse?
"a refined, silky front but a comfortable knit back."

Not that I have many places to wear such, but wondering how would you cut 2 such fabrics to hang right--the knit a size smaller?
That would be a way to buy a little of a pricier fabric for just the front or use a remnant.

I have seen a few patterns using both knits and wovens for this effect. Let me see if I can find the numbers.

Thanks!
Does she look a little ghost-like in the blow-up?

Actually, I'm glad I'm not a 20-something in the business
world now--so much to think about before getting out of the house in the morning! We didn't have all the boutiques/blogs/pressure/choices way back when--of course, no pants allowed until those ugly poly pantsuits with bow blouses came in! H. actually had a mauve leisure suit with the big spread collar.....
