NOTES ABOUT DESIGN

The Starry Night Blouse is designed with batwing sleeves. It is constructed by working individual panels for the front and back, which are then sewn together.

Each panel consists of four sections that require different techniques to shape the blouse:

Section 1: The main triangle. This section is worked to achieve the desired width from cuff to cuff. As you work on this width, it will also add length to the blouse. It’s important to maintain the proportions while doing so.

Section 2: Creating the armhole or sleeve opening. To achieve this, we decrease stitches at the beginning and end of each row. This helps keep the edges of the armhole straight.

Sections 3 and 4: These sections are worked to make the bottom of the blouse straight and fill the sides of the blouse.
