Information

Perfect for an afternoon out with friends or a day at the office, this semifitted blouse features a fun chest detail that makes it extra special. Sew the blouse with contrasting fabrics for a color-blocked detail or choose lace or a sheer fabric for the inset stripe. This contemporary take on a vintage blouse eliminates the shoulder seam so the sleeves are easy and fun to sew. The inset panel forms a pretty chevron over the bracelet-length flounce sleeves, and the back features an easy keyhole opening with a button-and-loop closure. This pattern includes separate pieces for A/B, C, and D cups for ease of fitting.

This pattern started with an experiment. I wanted to see if it would be possible to eliminate the set-in sleeve shoulder seam and play with a one-piece front and back yoke instead. By doing this, it would allow a continuous stripe across the front and back. And this makes it really easy to sew the sleeves, too. No easing in the sleeve cap! Plus, it’s just fun to have that yoke to play with. There are so many things you can do with it.

Suggested Fabrics
Suitable for drapey fabrics like crepe, rayon challis, charmeuse, georgette, lawn, and linen. For Fabric B, use a contrasting color, lace, or chiffon.

Notions
Coordinating thread, one 3/8" or 1/2" button or hook and eye closure for the back.
