Sewaholic Patterns Alma Blouse View B

So this is my second Alma blouse, I chose view B for my second attempt simply because I love peter pan collars but did not own a single item of clothing with one?!? obviously this was a situation that needed to be remedied immediately.

I used a beautiful crepe de chine silk for the shell, which although a little slippery to work with is one of my favourite fabrics to wear, it's cool and feather light.
For the collar I used a dotted swiss from my stash.

 I opted for no sleeves because the weather is already quite warm here even though we are still not officially in spring and I'm anticipating a hot summer ahead and no sleeves is more wearable for me
The skirt is also me made, one of the first wearable garment i made, several years old now but still worn often.
