Knot Blouse

Added Dec 11, 2016

Nedre Vats, Norway






I was curious about this pattern, so I had to try it.. It’s special with the opening at the shoulder seams, and I like the pleats in front. I have used a little button at the back of the neck for the opening. I thought it would be nice with a double fabric for the knot, but since I have used medium jersey it is a bit heavy, but it’s also possible to tie it on the back part :)

    Great top! It is actually a pattern I did notice and liked immediately, but my sewing queue is much longer than my speed. ;) Love your style and all your makes! Red is very flattering on you.

    I looked through the pattern, too,but wasn’t sure as for the right fabric to make it. I agree that the design is very interesting and am glad the ready blouse looks well.. even better than in the magazine… the colour is very winsome and great for the season. I like what you’ve got:-)
