Simplicity 3684 Part IV

The neck band was completed last night. It tooked 3 attempts to get it right because once the band was applied , i notice folds around the front curve of the neckline. I removed 1/4-1/2 from that area and "walla" the problem was solve, however i had to cut the neckband a little longer because the neck curve became deeper. Once sewn the neckband fit was a little loose. The style of the neckband was called "Nehru" when i was a teenager. It is the same kind of neckband that you see mostly in Chinese and Indian style garments. Next is the sleeve. I cut the sleeve out of muslin first and hand sewed it to the blouse. I will have my daughter try it on later. Hopefully, this blouse will be finished this week.

Alethia, ya me quedo con ganas de ver el resultado de la blusa para tu hija. Hacia días que no escuchaba esta palabra : cuello "Nerhu", aquí también lo llamamos cuello "Mao". Te deseo mucho exito en este proyecto para tu hija. Un fuerte abrazo para tí y saludos a tu familia. Paco

America, Happy Birthdate
