    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Weekend Getaway Blouse, 5/21/2015

    Reviewer: (Spring Green, Wisconsin, United States)

    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!


    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 pattern easy to follow, style may not be for me , 5/15/2015

    Reviewer: (Seattle, WA, United States)

    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.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beautiful blouse!, 3/7/2015

    Reviewer: (Ok, USA)

    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.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Another professional pattern, 11/30/2014

    Reviewer: (Denver, CO, US)

    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!

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    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.
