I love a good peasant blouse and have been looking for a good pattern for some years. This blouse pattern is one I will use again and again Anita Blouse by StyleARC
I didn’t even have to make any big changes to the pattern! just some tiny ones:
1. I added a bit to the bottom to make a deeper hem and
2. I made the drawstring with the help of one of my trusty Clover bias binding makers (12mm size) out of a strip of fabric cut on the grain, put through the binging maker and then folded in half and sewn.
I found the pattern well drafted (curves where they should be), easy to assemble and a good fit. Can’t wait to try another StyleARC pattern.
I would only classify it as intermediate because there aren’t many instructions. I don’t really need them but if you are a real novice you might want more.
