Even Better!

I finished my third rendition of this blouse by Built by Wendy. This time I used flannel (the first was cotton calico, the second pinwale corduroy). I was confident enough in the pattern to start really messing with it...

I like the original pattern well enough, but the deep v-neck was a bit too deep for me and I always wear a camisole under it. So this time I modified the neckline and made it about an inch higher.

I also made the top about 4 inches longer, with the sides split open at the bottom. And I made the sleeves extra long.

I'll give it a test-wear today and see how it feels. I'm off to ride on a bus with three dozen kids to a JBQ competition!
