A whiff of silk
be trendy and up-to-date with this DIY Poncho Blouse.
Start with the full 55 inch width of the silk. Fold the silk, selvage on selvage. Measure from the folded edge to the selvage the length of the Blouse (e.g. 27in). The folded edge will be the shoulder and throat form. The length of the folded edge is 42 inch. Cut the throat form in the middle.
Measure from the shoulder the length of the arm (10 inch) and fix it with pins. The length of the sleeve inseam will be 6 inch. Stitch the side seam at 6 inch. Start at the selvage and stitch it with a length of 16 inch.
Sew the sleeve- and side seam in one process with a straight stitch. Fold the throat form tight twice, steam with the flat iron and stitch.
