This button-front blouse has a gentle, loose fit that's reminiscent of the 1960s, and looks equally adorable tucked in or worn loose.

You can make Violet with short gathered sleeves (Version 1) or mid-length sleeves that gather at the hem with elastic (Version 2). The blouse is shaped with bust darts and a back yoke with center gathering.
