Raglan Sleeve Leaf Blouse

Phoenicia, New Y...






I’m not a big wearer of blouses, I find them generally uncomfortable and am always worried about them unbuttoning by accident and somehow they’re just not me. Then I saw this blouse in an Anthropologie catalog that had raglan sleeves and this wonderful detail, so I thought I could do my own version and for extra comfort I used stretchy fabric. I like it very much, the only problems are the armholes and upper sleeves – they’re a little big because I used a jacket pattern as a base (BWOF 03/08 jacket #104 – same as my 2nd creation). Next time I’ll have to fix that. All in all I love the blouse though!

Material Notes

Some kind of knit gorgeous fabric I got a the Greuter Jersey factory store in Switzerland. Snaps from Sewbaby.com





me for makin’ it mine and Anthropologie for soooo many gorgeous ideas to inspire me (I added two images of the blouse that inspired this blouse)

    Love the colour and especially the leaves. I have to try the leaf thing. Very inspiring.

    Lovely color and style. You really vamped the style and made it your own. Way to go..

    Spectacular. You may have borrowed the embellishment shape, but you turned it into something completely different, and better. Much better. Love the color, shape, and length of the blouse too. I have a terrible time with blouses as well. Too much gaping at the front and pulled too tight across the back, and they’re never long enough. I like your idea of using a jacket pattern for a blouse.

    How beautiful are your cascading leaves. I love it. Havent seen the Anthropologie version but I am certain this one is better.
