HotPatterns 1210: the Fast & Fabulous Draped Blouse

My first make in this New Year is HotPatterns 1210: the Fast & Fabulous Draped Blouse. 

When shopping over the holidays, I saw this style everywhere! 
This was a fun and fast project. 

I like it! I used a drapey rayon knit from my stash, which was a great choice for this style.
Designer Trudy always has an interesting technique or two up her sleeve, looking 
a step or two ahead when writing her instructions. I love the French seam at the front hem, & the back pleat
..... and the neckline went together like a charm. 

I like this relaxed look, but I might consider going down a size next time.

Happy New Year!
