And now, on to the next garment: the black and white pinstripe blouse, which is an Eileen Fisher top that I found at Goodwill... It is rather too small in the torso, being a size S, so I have been cutting off strips from the lower edges and inserting them to make it wider. There will eventually be six narrow gores, which will allow the blouse to button down the front, with the concomitant effect of removing the loose lower panels and making the entire garment more like a blouse than a tunic top. But since I need and wear blouses, and this one has particularly excellent linen/rayon crinkle fabric, I am not at all sorry.
