Keyhole Neck Blouse

Skill level:  intermediate as the sewing instructions are basic and assume prior sewing knowledge. But you won’t know unless you have a go!

Blouse size UK s/m: bust 89cm-93cm/ 35″-36 1/2″

A simple magyar/kimono style blouse. Worn with or without shoulder pads depending on what decade you are aiming for.

NB: My sample blouse has 2 keyhole cut-outs, the pattern has 3.  Change as you like.
