And here, with the belt - which I made loooooong enough for sure - wrapped twice around. No doubt it'll also look better without the second belt holding up my jeans under it: you can see how it thickens up the hipline (yuk!).
You can also see just how very light is this fabric - doing a turned edge really wouldn't have worked, I fear.
Completely see through - it'll never be worn IRL without a tank or cami under it.
Evaluating it for the design, I had deliberately made the shoulder line a little dropped, but now that I see it in action, I do believe that I'd prefer those seams to sit on, not fall off, my shoulder point. Easy enough, and I already shifted them upwards by 1.5" before I put the pattern pieces away. The waist darts in the back look like they could be brought in towards centre a little as well.
I'm thinking that my second blouse will share a few similarities with this one: a cut-on collar and a waist tie. I plan to base it on Burda 105-6-2009, a pattern which I already used some time ago to make this reversible silk dupioni jacket:
This one has an absurdly dropped shoulder. You might think that this was my poor quality fitting, but not so! I cut my usual 38 and stay-stitched the necklines to ensure they don't stretch, and, if you look at the model jacket on a dummy, the dropped shoulder is quite evident. Maybe someone in the drafting department forgot to shorten the shoulder of a jacket sloper originally intended to have linebacker shoulder pads (hello, eighties)?! which of course are impossible to put into a reversible garment. Whatevah - I'll just shorten the shoulder seams so the sleeves actually reach my shoulder.
