New (old) Pattern - A Versatile Blouse

This is a 'new & improved' version of my original pattern. Everything about it has been revamped, from the pattern pieces themselves to the instruction manual, which now includes detailed illustrations and clearer steps.

I call it a Versatile Blouse pattern because I've used it to make a few different renditions; with a band collar, with an open keyhole front neckline, as a mini dress by extending the hemline.

Original neckline, with front waist darts left unstitched for a looser fit

With a narrow band collar, all darts stitched for a more fitted shape.

With a shaped neckline, no facings but finished with binding, including the bottom hem
 All darts stitched.

With a boat neckline; made by first extending the shoulder line, which then also allowed for the inclusion of the cap sleeves after redrawing the armscye.
Length of the blouse extended into a mini dress.

I plan to do extension tutorials on how to adapt the pattern for all the versions listed above, possibly plus a few more.  Further details of the pattern can be found here, where you can also purchase it.
