This pattern may require adjustments based on your figure, especially for the high collar versions, as the fit will depend greatly upon neck size and height, and position of the neck and shoulders.
A muslin mock up is highly recommended for all versions of this pattern, and should be done before starting insertion lace, embroidery, or other embellishment.
This blouse is shown in photographs with the upcoming Wearing History Cordelia skirt pattern, which may be purchased seperately. This blouse does not include a belt, skirt, or embellishment design or instruction.
A free photo tutorial for basic lace insertion by machine is available on my blog.

Great pattern! Does exactly what it says on the tin – makes a beautiful base for a 1900s blouse. The instructions are very comprehensive, with lots of period information, and the suggestions for variations are excellent.
I made mine in a geometric broderie anglaise, and added width to do a bit of tucking. I had to do a bit of adjusting to the pattern to accommodate the fact that I have scoliosis and tilted shoulders, but the fit was very accurate for a standard body. I love the finished result – very Anne of Green Gables!
