Blouse - Vogue V1247

The pattern for this blouse is Vogue V1247 by Rachel Comey. I've also made the skirt (which I love). The pattern was a medium difficulty, featuring french seams and some tricky piecing. It would probably be a challenge for beginners but could be a good project for someone wanting to move to the next level. The pattern was well drafted and the hardest part was seaming the bottom front (but probably easy for anyone with quilting experience). There are no closures on the blouse and it fits loosely. I made a size 12 and I could have gone down a size. The picture above shows the blouse with the Vogue V1247 skirt. It's a nice pairing but the blouse would also work well with slim pants or tucked in like below.
The fabric is a Thai silk that I bought a thrift store. I haven't yet figured out where to wear it, probably out for dinner or drinks. The fabric seems a little too nice for work. I'm really satisfied overall. It's a gorgeous fabric and a great pattern.
