This simple blouse has a banded neckline which becomes ties to close it at the low waist, although you can tie it lower or higher to suit yourself. Your blouse has deep raglan sleeves; cut them to below the elbows and face the hems, or make them full length gathered onto deep cuffs. Blouse is finished with a narrow hem.
You'll want to wear this as a top layer over a simple cami or tank top or dress, or over a slim-fit T-shirt. Make this one as a quick and easy way to dress up a simple outfit, and wear it as a pool, beach or evening cover-up.

That's it, nothing else!
