Our new Fitzroy Blouse sewing pattern is a versatile pattern that is both classic and easy to sew, and today I’ll help you with some fabric and styling ideas for your own version of this style.
This style works really well with lightweight, drapey fabrics. Try soft cottons like voile or lawn. Linen works really well too. I’m even more excited to sew this in fancy silk satin to wear with ripped and faded jeans, but maybe that’s just me. I made the two blouses in the photos with linen and from a dotted lawn.
This is such a clean, classic style. It could be your go-to buttoned blouse, or you could style it more casually. I love the idea of adding lace or a ruffle into that center-front and neck seam. Wouldn’t that be pretty?
