Description

I made this blouse as a test for Colette Patterns Sencha pattern. First of all, Colette patterns are beautifully and thoughtfully made: they are worth purchasing for the art and the awesome, detailed instructions alone. The styles are pretty and classic, and contain vintage-inspired details that you may not see on most contemporary patterns. If you are looking to upgrade your look, Colette patterns are what you should be sewing.
This particular pattern is one of my favorites: it comes with three cute variations and can be made in a variety of blouse fabrics to be styled from casual to dressy. For this version, I made version 2, but did not stitch down the darts at the top, leaving them as tucks instead (looked better in the soft fabric that I was using). I am planning on making another one of these soon from a sturdier fabric to wear in the fall.
