'High Profile' Jabot Blouse

High Profile Jabot
The original 1934 McCall pattern design featured an esemble with separate jabot yoke under an overdress with cufffed long or short sleeve options and a jacket. 
I drafted the jabot yoke and waist front pieces together from the original pattern.  Since I omitted the attached skirt of the overdress, I drafted enough length and ease to the waist pieces so it could be worn as a blouse.
This image highlights the integrated jabot collar I created.
I chose the long sleeves with French cuffs.
I cut this blouse in white silk shantung doupioni, fully lined it and made a self-facing for the jabot collar.
The complete profile.

I converted an original 1934 pattern for a seperate jabot yoke and overdress into this 'High Profile' jabot blouse.

I have actually worn this blouse with the short brocade skirt you see in this ensemble I posted:

I have also worn it with a long, black wool flannel skirt (from a 1945 Vogue pattern) that is gathered in the back to resemble a small bustle.
So, the blouse is versatile in regard to wearing it with several skirt lengths.
