1. Lordy, Lordy. Sounds like you’ve got this all figured out.

    One of these days (soon I hope) I’m going to take the plunge and make my wife a blouse. Nothing fancy, but a simple, tailored blouse. She wears a 10 or 12 petite in RTW. Any suggestions for a pattern? I’ve made camp shirts for my boys, but never made a blouse/shirt for the wife. I think I’m ready for the challenge. Wish. Me. Luck.

  2. Mike I certainly do have a recommendation: McCall’s 5433 that I just made or McCall’s 5630. Both are Palmer/Pletsch patterns with the tissue fit instructions. Buy your pattern by the high bust measurement and work through the instructions. Since you’ll be able to fit the pattern on her, rather than yourself, I’ll bet you get it right the first time.
