I dug out the 1895 blouse mock-up I have done ages ago and proceede to try it back on. I am a little larger now than I was when I made it, but it fits rather well with a few minor adjustements.  Moving a dart here, and armscye there... I have taken it apart and am tracing off the master pattern. The next mock-up will serve as the fitted lining it it works ok.
The sleeve looks mostly ok, I just need to make the sleeve head a bit bigger in two areas (to move the armscye upward on the shoulder, as opposed to just at the tip of it) and pivot it slightly. I just wish I remembered which sleeve pattern I used... It has a little bit of body already, I am hoping with silk taffetas and a stiff lining it will be puffy enough.

The water heater is down, no heating and no warm water for the past two days, I really really REALLY hope the maintenance guys who come tomorrow will fiw it quickly. I am NOT looking forward to a cold shower...
