Red Riding Hood blouse writeup
Base Pattern: Butterick 6196, peasant blouse
(1) Shorten the sleeve by six inches.
(2) Narrow the sleeve by two and a half inches.
(3) Cut the sleeve into strips based on the following measurements (from the bottom of the seam).
Base (cuff) 4 1/2"
Lace (bottom) 4"
Center (narrow) 2"
Lace (top) 4"
I also lengthened the bottom of the skirt by three inches to make sure it was long enough to emulate Red's blouse.
