Edwardian Shirtwaist.

I am embarking on an Edwardian blouse. I recently dot the pattern from Reconstructing History, it's pattern #950. What is awesome about RH is that you can purchase the pattern, then download it. All it takes is scissors, tape and patience to put all the pieces together.

The pattern is relatively easy, but the only difficult thing is putting together the two front pieces. The gathered side piece fits awkwardly into the front piece, well the sewing of it is the awkward part. Between the gathering and fitting it into a corner, I was frustrated. So, I sewed it by hand and that was MUCH easier.

More pics to come!
