Vintage Wrap Blouse is Done
Here is my Vintage Wrap Blouse, which I finished Tuesday evening. I really like it, and I am very pleased with the end result of my drafting. Here's a link to a back and side view. The color is not too true on these photos, as the actual batik is quite pale, almost a butter/sage combination, with a little bit of darker sage here and there.
I like the fact that this wrap design has a high cross-point, since I usually avoid wrap styles because they gape open. I like the neckline on this, and one really nice point, which doesn't show in any of the photos, is that the back yoke seam and the back shoulder darts are at exactly the same angle, which looks very pretty. That's the kind of detail that's difficult to achieve I think. At least it is for me, so this seems like a very lucky break.
