What Is This, You say?

This mess of a package is about to become Colette Pattern’s Aster blouse. I must have been under a rock or something, but Colette patterns now come in up to a size 26! When did this happen?! I’m so excited because it used to be almost painful to look at their website, knowing how much work it would take to grade up a size 18 pattern to my size.

As it is, I had to add a little bit to this pattern, but not so much I was made unsure of the outcome. I couldn’t believe I didn’t have to do anything to the bust darts, either.  

The fabric is from Fabric-Store.com, a wonderful place to buy linen fabrics. Do not go there unless you want to increase your stash by orders of magnitude. Fair warning!
