How to make a blouse. NewLook 6107

I found a huge gap in my wardrobe. I have very few blouses and they would be such a nice change from t-shirts that I decided to look for a pattern.
I decided on NewLook 6107.

I chose some white spotted cotton lawn.

The first job is to pick the right size, so take your measurements and choose the pattern size closest  to your bust measurement.
Then pin the fabric together along the selvedge, place your pattern pieces along the correct grain line. Pin. Cut.

I then made the rouleau loops. Do not be daunted  by this. Get the correct tool, a loop turner, (they are inexpensive) and it will be a breeze
