|Self Drafted Linen Blouse|
This is the perfect go-to dress for running about the house. I took the old work shirt in a size XL-T and used one of the sleeves as the pockets. I used the other sleeve hem as the back yoke trim to transition to the gathers. I used a strip from the leftover sleeve to do the same seam finish in the front. It just looked better that way. The armholes were shaped from the removal of the sleeves. I cut them off to the inside by about an inch to a total of 2 inches on the sideseam. The hem of the shirt tail was folded up to match the front.
