    Thoughtfully Engineered Pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 02/05/2022
    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 (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

    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.

    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 (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.
