    Weekend Getaway Blouse
    Reviewed by on 05/21/2015
    I made this blouse as soon as I downloaded the pattern. I'm fairly new to sewing, but have looked through a bunch of patterns. This pattern is, by far, the easiest one to follow, which I appreciated. I made the blouse in 100% linen and it worked beautifully. I've worn it repeatedly since I finished it and it fits really well - I love the kimono sleeves!

    pattern easy to follow, style may not be for me
    Reviewed by on 05/15/2015
    The pattern instructions were complete and I think they would be straight forward enough for a complete beginner. I was cautious about cutting my size per the pattern envelope because the pattern lists several inches of ease in the bust. I did, and it looks nice finished and is comfortable to wear but it does gape considerably when I lean forward. If I make the pattern again, I will likely make a small bust adjustment to help reduce gaping even though I am a B cup. (the pattern instructions do include instructions for bust adjustments in them!) I also found that the past in the back was unflattering to my broad shoulders in the cotton lawn I was using, so replaced with shoulder darts instead. I liked that the pattern was quick to sew, but as I usually make garments that are more fitted through the waist, I haven't decided if I will make it again (if I do I might fit it with darts in the back and add a contrast zip down the center back). The pattern was still will worth the price if only for the facing instructions -- I can see myself using the front and back facing instructions again in other contexts in other patterns.

    This blouse went together seamlessly! Instructions were detailed and the pictures were a great inclusion! I tweaked the pattern a bit to create more ease in the arms and adjusted the bust dart but everything else I kept the same. Thanks so much for a great pattern. Will definitely make again! Plan to wear it with the Everyday Skirt.

    Another professional pattern

    Another very professional pattern from Oliver + S. Very simple to construct and elegant in design. As in the Cinema Dress, I loved the method used for increasing the bust size of the blouse; very effective, very simple and a technique transferrable to many other designs. Well done!

    I have just finished my third Weekend Getaway, this time a tunic in black hanky linen (ramie). The subtle shaping gives gentle definition to my post baby body. I feel very tidy and pulled together at a time when many of my clothes make me feel blobby. My dress version was a God send with my last pregnancy, I wore it until 32 weeks. The blouse version, I made in white linen/poly, is a staple for me as I can pull it up and feed in it. The pockets are so stylish, you can leave them off for a super quick sew, but why would you? They really make the blouse pop! The back neck facing is a thing of beauty, so clever. Just trust Liesl's excellent instructions. I look forward to making this again in some very soft draping silk.

    I loved my weekend getaway blouse and have just cut out another 2 - one for a friend.The pockets are the cutest I've seen. The only negative is it is very low cut but I sewed the seam up a little higher and although the collar doesn't sit the way it looks in your photo - it is perfectly fine.

    Favourite blouse pattern to date
    Reviewed by on 09/23/2014
    This is my absolute favourite blouse pattern to date! It's a quick and easy sew, and is such a flattering shape. I've sewn it with Liberty Lawn so far, and I think it's a perfect weight. The only change I've made so far is adding an invisible zipper in the front seam to make the shirt breastfeeding friendly! I've also learned that you can squeeze the short sleeve pattern onto 1m of fabric if you don't mind piecing together your facing. Unless you're using a large pattern that has obvious repeats, the seam is hardly noticeable!

    Great pattern with clear, simple instructions that resulted in a beautiful blouse. Rather than cutting out based on my measurements I chose "my size" based on the measurements of the finished garment. Very happy with results and can't wait to whip up some more!

    My New Favourite Dress
    Reviewed by on 10/19/2013
    Fabulous, quick-to-sew easy fitting, easy wearing dress. Kimono style sleeves are simple to sew but very flattering. The facings fold back to gently flatter the neck and the pockets are a very clever detail. The dress is subtly shaped to hint at the hips and waist but the action back give good ease. A lovely dress that makes up nicely in fine,draping fabric. If you liked the Lisette Portfolio, you will love this.
