Taking the shape of the body

Unfolding the body

Translating the sleeve/shoulder blade/waist/armpit panels into a first attempt at a wearable blouse

First toile of the blouse

Fit adjustments for shoulder and armpit

Creating the pattern with the arm in an upright position creates a narrow shoulder, a lot of volume in the armpit and a short length from neck to shoulder. In order to wear the blouse with arms down I opened up the top of the shoulders and added the needed space in the pattern.
