Vogue Patterns - 9771 Misses Blouse
This is and this isn't Vogue 9771. This OOP basic cowl-neck pattern is designed for wovens to be cut on the bias. But I mainly used the neckline, grafting it to my T&T knit top body. It worked beautifully with this very fluid rayon/spandex knit. I did make a trial version in some ancient cotton kn... more...
