Doe and Deer Datura Blouse

I finally finished the Doe and Deer Datura blouse two weeks ago. I originally got the fabric a year and a half ago but just finally got around to making it. I got the fabric at my local fabric shop, the Sewcial Lounge in Madison, WI. The yoke is chambray and the rest is a liberty print. I essentially did the peter pan collar variation but left off the collar.

The one tricky part was sewing the yoke together at the shoulders. I used a tutorial on the Drapery blog to get me through it. Once you do it once it isn’t actually tricky.

My favorite part is the buttons down the back. They are just too freaking cute.

The arm holes are a tad bit tight when I reach my arms forward so if I make this again I’d probably move the arm holes in a hair. I’d probably also bring the hem up a half inch.

Overall I like the way it came out though it is a little summery to wear at the moment. We will have to see how much milage it actually gets in the spring.
