NOTES ABOUT DESIGN

The Pride Blouse has an open back. The trunk is worked in a single piece up to the armpit and then split into front and back panels which are then worked individually to create the armholes.
The sleeves are worked into the armholes after assembling.
The shape of the trunk is a trapezium. We start with a smaller base and increase on the sides until the end of the piece.
