Description

I made this silk blouse from Simplicity pattern 2339 for my Mother in Law for her birthday. It is from the Amazing Fit pattern collection, but the pattern is now out of print sadly. It’s a great pattern, although basic in design, as it includes separate pattern pieces for A, B, C and D cup sizes and plenty of fit directions and suggestions included in the instructions. I made French seams for all of the major seams. I plan to make this pattern again for myself in a nice crisp cotton, linen, or even silk. My mother in law is very happy with her blouse, although she is afraid to wear for fear of spilling on it! I hope she wears it more often as it is a lovely silk and feels so nice against the skin.

    Stunning!

    I almost had this pattern for like $2 but forgot about the auction and missed it. Darn it. Such a lovely fitted shirt pattern.

    Why on earth would Simplicity remove this from their pattern line up!? Goodness.

      Thank you! I agree, this is a great, classic shirt pattern and there is no good reason to remove it from their current collection. So many others have made it sucessfully too. Argh!
