Square-Neck Pleated Blouse

Added Feb 11, 2015

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I was curious about this pattern, so I had to give it a try. I have used jersey with silver and it was a bit soft for the pleats, but I like the square neck very much and Iā€™m happy how it turned out.
The skirt is from an earlier project.

    Sparkle! Really cute, Ellen. I wasn’t sure about how this pattern would work when I first saw it. I like the fabric you chose and the result is very modern and fun. THAT SKIRT! It’s AmAzing! I have to check that out. So unique and eye-catching! – curry

    This top looks amazing on you; you have made a fantastic ‘designer’ top. Looks great with that skirt. (This project did not show up in my Activity feed, so it is a good thing I recognized you on the Projects page.)

    The top looks fabulous on you! Glad you tried it! I now want to give it a try. Did you make any changes or does it fit right out of the pattern sheet?

    I’m glad that someone made it, cause it really looked strange – I couldn’t decide whether I liked it or not. you proved that it is nice pattern
