Impulsive sewing: grey blouse

The day before yesterday, acting on pure impulse, I decided to sew a blouse for myself out of some left-over grey fabric. I'm not sure exactly what's in it, probably most linnen but definitely something else as well. Anyhow... I based the pattern on a flimsy blouse I've had for years and that I love, but since the grey linnen-like fabric wasn't as stretchy I had to change things up a bit. Aaand of course I couldn't just leave it at that either, but had to do some minor changes just for fun.

Here's the result! I'm sorry the pic is all blurry... we lost our camera a week ago and Marcus hasn't really befriended the smartphone camera yet. =)
(No, that's not my nipple showing through the fabric, it's a tiny wrinkle at the edge of a seam that in this light got very visible. No nipples showing, nothing to see here!)
