First self-drafted blouse!! I seem to have a break through with flat pattern designing. This is my very first truly DIY blouse. From sketching the design, to cutting the pattern and finally, the construction of the blouse. It isn’t the prettiest, but I’m super proud of the effort that went into seeing it completed. It took me not more than 3 hours from start to finish. This one is the prototype, and I will make the needed adjustments then complete a new pattern with the adjustments.
Some of the needed adjustments:

The neck collar needs some stability

the bust area needs at least 1/2 inch increase

The length could have an additional 1 1/2 inches added.

It was truly rewarding to create something useful…… I have rediscovered a passion that had been sleeping for years!  Such fun!
