    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perfect for a new Mum!, 11/12/2014

    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.

    Reviewer: (Sydney, NSW, Australia)

    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.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Favourite blouse pattern to date, 9/23/2014

    Reviewer: (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

    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!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 WOW!, 7/28/2014

    Reviewer: (Torino, Italy)

    The Weekend Getaway Blouse PAttern put together two attribute I appreciate very very much: simplicity and creativenenss. Detailed and clear instructions have guided me beautifully. I already know that I'll just make this blouse again and again.
