It's official, I love the Datura blouse pattern by Deer and Doe. I am on my third and it might be my favorite yet. I used a Nani Iro double gauze I purchased from someone destashing on Instagram. If you have not ventured into the world of Instagram yet, you should totally try it. So many great projects and people out there!
For this version of the Datura blouse, I used the border and factory edge of the fabric for the bottom hem of the top. Because of this, I made a straight hem at the bottom instead of the original hem as I did in my first two Datura blouses.
I also went with a plain neckline, no triangle cut-outs or collar. Simple but awesome. The double gauze was a bit tricky to sew with, however I was also using a different machine than I normally use so I am not sure it was all the double gauze. Either way, I love the result and I already have the fabric for my next Datura washed and ready to go. I believe this is going to be my go to piece this summer!
The only part I have not finished on this top is the buttons. What kind of buttons would you use on the back?
