Red Riding Hood blouse writeup

Red Riding Hood Blouse
Alteration notes

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"
Shoulder (remainder)

I also lengthened the bottom of the skirt by three inches to make sure it was long enough to emulate Red's blouse.
