I made this blouse last spring from an old fitted sheet that had worn out. It’s really comfy and it’s become by favourite, all-purpose casual blouse. I’ve posted it as a pattern/tutorial (my first attempt!), so make sure to post pictures if you make it! I’d love to see them and get feedback.
This is an easy, loose fitting (but feminine) blouse that anyone can draft using their measurements. It has a deep V neck, cap sleeves, and a tie in the back for shaping. No darts and no sleeves to set in. A great way to use up fabric scraps. The pattern base is very simple, so you can alter or embellish it as creatively as you like. Make it longer and add a belt, use contrasting fabrics, etc.
1 to 1.5 meters of woven materials light to medium weight (cottons, cotton blends, etc.)
Buttons or beads to embellish
