      Nice unique feature for a blouse
    Reviewed by Terri ( Verified Buyer) on 01/06/2023
    I am almost finished making this blouse in a print cotton voile. The instructions are so easy to follow to obtain professional looking results. Also the fit is great. The sleeves are so unique and cute. I look forward to wearing it.

      Have already made two of these blouses
    Reviewed by Ali ( Verified Buyer) on 12/27/2022
    Once again, a main reason for purchasing this pattern was to avoid the FBA. The cup sizing makes all the difference to the fit. I've now made two of these blouses with the bell sleeves, one in a flowy polyester cotton mix and one in a drapey, fine, floral jersey. I love them both. Although the V-neck looks quite low when the blouses are on a hanger, the depth is actually perfect - even for a D-cup. The only downside: sewing seven tiny buttonholes! My old Bernina couldn't cope and I had to sew all 14 by hand. (I may use snaps next time.)

      Can’t wait to make this.

    I was absolutely impressed with how quick my pattern arrived from the USA to Australia, I tracked it constantly. Unfortunately, I have only managed to cut out the paper pattern, but am getting close to making a toile (Aussie speak). Thank you, will let you know how my garment turns out.

    Reviewed by Barb ( Verified Buyer) on 06/21/2022
    I just finished my first Leisl & Co pattern. I made Geneva V-neck blouse with lantern sleeves. I found the directions to be clear and easy to follow. I'm thrilled to find a pattern with the C and D cup options. I was a little clumsy fitting the side seams together, but I figured it out. I plan to make this again with the bell sleeve in a linen fabric.

      Thoughtfully Engineered Pattern
    Reviewed by Fran ( Verified Buyer) on 02/04/2022
    I just completed the “Geneva” blouse with lantern sleeves. The instructions are clear and I love the C-cup adjustments. The front fits beautifully, but the back is a little snug. I probably should have sized up to a 12. All in all, it turned out beautifully and I’m really proud of the results.

      My new favourite blouse!
    Reviewed by Colleen Whitteker ( Verified Buyer) on 01/10/2022
    This pattern is lovely and I love how all the pieces fit together perfectly. The instructions are very clear and I had the blouse finished in just a few hours. The only part I struggled with was putting the PDF pattern together, but once I figured it out, it was quick to assemble. I'm definitely going to sew another blouse with the bell sleeve soon!

      Terrific blouse pattern
    Reviewed by Victoria ( Verified Buyer) on 12/18/2021
    Love this blouse, and this pattern company! Pattern is well drafted, love the shaped sleeve and the shirttail hem. Recommend using a relatively drape fabric.

      Easy to follow directions
    Reviewed by Anita Vigorito ( Verified Buyer) on 11/24/2021
    There are so many companies out there now and I've tried several since taking up sewing clothing again. It's been 25 years or more since I sewed my own clothes. So far your Geneva V-neck Blouse pattern had the best, the very best, instructions. They were so clear. I made the blouse out of flannel and it fits!! Thank you for this good experience.

      Lovely blouse
    Reviewed by andrea thompson ( Verified Buyer) on 11/20/2021
    I toiled this in a slightly less drapey fabric which gave a fairly sculptural sleeve, which I felt I was less keen on. The fit was excellent as was the drafting. I shortened the body but that is normal for me. The completed blouse was made in a black spotted viscose and has been worn multiple times already. I did find the instructions overly complex and the images a bit small . I would also have like to see more variation included in the pattern to make it better value for money.
