Rush Hour Blouse with Piping!

The Finished Rush Hour top syled

Hi Everyone! I am again over on the Oliver + S blog today with another blouse that I made for my daughter. You may recall the Breezy Blouse that I made for my oldest daughter. Well, a mother can't sew for one daughter and not sew for the other! The Rush Hour top was wonderful to sew. The fit and finish are amazing. The pattern also includes a dress and if you need a fitted dress for your wardrobe, I highly recommend it! I chose to pipe all the edges to give the top a special finishing touch. You can get the details over at Oliver + S. The Rush Hour top includes a unique way of finishing the sleeveless armholes and it did take me a little while and a seam ripper to figure it out! So here is a helpful tip: when you pin the armhole together, if you can sew around the armhole in one continuous seam, you have pinned it incorrectly! In order to pin it correctly, first fold the seam allowances to the inside.
