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.

    I love this pattern and the shirt I made.
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/10/2018
    The instructions are excellent. The fit is great, I had one alteration to the dart at the breast because of how mine sit, but that one is expected. I will definitely use this pattern again, this is one of my favorite shirts in my wardrobe now. I used silk linen for the body, a heavy fuzzy fabric on the yoke, and a semi-shear woven cotton for the band, all in black.
