The use of elastic band is important for the blouse to obtain the right fit!
Work : The blouse is knitted top-down in the round in Stockinette Stitch. First, the top of the blouse is knitted and then, when reaching the waist, increases are made to create the voluminous peplum skirt, which is finished by a folded hem. Stitches for the puffy sleeves are then picked up along the cast on row of the top. The sleeves are worked in the round and each has a broad folded wrist hem, which creates the sculpted effect of the sleeve. Hereafter, stitches are picked up along the neckline to create a finishing i-cord edge and ruffle. Lastly, 2 shaped ribbons are knitted in the round and attached at each side of the top. The blouse is finished by inserting an elastic band into the hem of the waist and neckline.
