I want to make a blouse with a gathered V neck collar. These were in style about 15 years ago. I don’t care when they were in style, they looked great on me and they look terrific with a V neck blazer. If that doesn’t help, think back to the nineties and women were wearing jackets under which you could see soft folds of a blouse just appearing around the neckline of the V neck blazer. the pattern I’m using is Simplicity 7453 if it’s still in their catelogue.
To explain a little better: the blouse is a V neck. But the V in the neckline is composed of folds of fabric (maybe three) that are loosely folded about a half and inch apart. I think most of you have seen this.
Well, if you think you know what I’m talking about, the fabric I have is fairly sheer and soft. I could wear a camisole under it, but I thought about lining it giving it some extra body with a very light fabric. Has anyone tried to do this with this type of blouse. Do you think this would work without lining the sleeves.
I hope I have described this well enough.
