Tie-Neck Blouse - Le 5001
This elegant blouse with its discreet low neckline and bow can also be made without sleeves in version b. Feminine, sexy and delicate are three adjectives that come to mind when looking at this blouse. It might look tricky to make but not at all.
The pattern is very accessible and yet manages to create so much style. Go for fluid fabrics (silk for instance) and that might be a little transparent (embroidered chiffon) to really emphasise the femininity of the piece. All you have to do now is choose between the blouse and sleeveless top version.
