December 29, 2014 by Nicole at HomeFor my last-of-the-year Britex blogger project, I chose the pattern first: the unusual and lovely design from Decades of Style, the Collar Confection blouse. The blouse design is interesting and a bit more challenging than a basic top, but still very doable. The blouse style dictates a fabric with drape, but it also must be fairly opaque because there are facings along the armholes. This midweight dotted ivory silk fits the bill and, in my humble opinion, is the ideal fabric for this top!

Colette on the 1st floor made this from Liberty of London cotton lawn.
The pattern is Decades of Style 5003. The blouse has cap sleeves with petal shaping at the shoulder edge. There are tucks in the front and darts at the back waist and shoulder to provide shaping. Draped collar and button closure. Liberty of London cotton fabric can be found on the 2nd floor (please call ahead to verify styles and colors).
