Draw the classic Lady Blouse.

Sketch a light drawing of a woman’s top half. Draw a curve for the neckline. Add two small inverted triangles for the collar. Draw a slightly off-center line that goes down the front.

Extend the curve and collar around the back of the neck to create a sense of depth. Put the line for the shirt’s front opening a little to the right of center, because the buttons will go on the left side of the line.

For the armhole seams, draw slight curves from the underarms to the shoulders. For each side seam, draw a line that follows the side of her torso and finishes by her hip. Draw sleeves for each arm and add cuffs. Finish the shirt by adding buttons on the left side of the center front opening and topstitching at the hem.
