The last steps are the following:
now I pinned my sleeves into the bodice, bodice wrong side out, sleeve right side out placed in the armhole.
sewed and serged starts looking like a blouse
because the facing always showed at the neckline I sewed the facing to the seam allowance
that still did not do the trick, so I sewed the shoulder seam of bodice and facing together to keep it on the inside
my inside looks like this now
and finally the facing stays where it belongs
now I serged my hem and marked my 2 cm hem allowance
and folded it up inside, but pinned on the right side
and sewed parallel to the fold
last I marked the placing for the buttons with pins. I put the through the loop a few mm away from the end of the loop
thats where my buttons need to be
and I sewed them on by hand. The original pattern require 6 buttons, but with the size of my buttons I preferred 4.
my finished blouse
fitting me well 😉
and I think using less ruffles at the waist and just 1 big ruffled part around the hip worked well. What do you think?
