Working on a blouse

I wanted to test the fit of Butterick 5218 so I dug out some linen scrap fabric from two earlier projects. I was able to get the front, facing, and sleeves out of the toile.  I pieced the back by adding a CB seam and a seam crosswise about 5 inches above the hem. The collar & under collar were also cut from the black linen.

I'm using my vintage Singer 301A for the first time and it seems like a dream! I just love it.
