Dramatic Sleeves Featuring Vogue V9243


Cheers to the weekend guys! 

A few weeks ago, Vogue patterns posted a picture on their IG page of a Solace London triple flounce sleeve blouse and used their V9243 pattern as a similar piece. I loved that Solace blouse so much that I could not pass up the challenge of recreating it! Since I already had the V9243 pattern in my stash, I quickly pulled it up and started sewing away. And if you follow me on IG, you might have come across behind the scenes glimpses of this blouse.

I utilized a complimenting ankara fabric for my middle flounce, just because i ran out of fabric since this was an impromptu sewing project. I will say, this was a relatively easy pattern to follow but I did make some adjustments for my body shape (as I do with almost all patterns). 

Adjustments
1. I added a few inches to the overall length, as I prefer my blouses to be a tad bit longer than average. 
2. I also added a total of 2 inches to my side pieces, which I cut in an A-line manner to prevent that snug fit over my tummy.
3. I cut view A for the upper sleeve then cut the flounces from view C and then I cut one extra flounce since i wanted the triple flounce look.

That was pretty much it guys! I paired this top with a basic black denim and gold plated belt to showcase my figure.
I will definitely be making this blouse again, in a solid fabric this time around though.
