The Frankenstein blouse
Mwahahahahahah! It's alive!

Okay, it's only paper. And it's only intended to be fabric, eventually, but still. Since I couldn't find any one (or two...) pattern that came close to Sophie's blouse, I have had to make one. Like... OMG.

I am taking the sleeve from Vogue 8421 view B (far right) (and, perforce, the armscye*), the collar from Vogue 7854 view A (far left) and the front (minus that hideous bottom ruffle) of Vogue 2947 view B (top right). The back is a rather plain mixing of all three - the collar and armscy, but minus the yoke-with-gathered-lower-part.

* I can't even find this word in the dictionary to spell it right. Bah.

EDIT: added an 'e' to the end of armscye. Still not sure what's right. Why isn't it in Webster's dictionary, for pity's sake?

Armscye. That's a weird word.

I finally put 'armscye' in Google and all I came up with was 'armscy' so I used that. Althought, who knows, maybe I forgot the last 'e' and that's why.

I must have left off the 'e' because 'armscye' got me a web dictionary hit.

I've seen it both ways, but armscye more often.
