Taylor — Linen Swing Blouse Pattern
An easy project to sew, this loose fitting and flattering blouse is great on warmer days. Visit The Thread for the original article and instructions on sewing this item.
Doesn't mention how much yards needed?!
Thank you for pointing that out. Some of our older free patterns do not have yardage charts for each size but we are hoping to upgrade them soon. :) The 2 yards listed in The Thread tutorial for this pattern will work for all the included sizes.
This has become my go to blouse. I have made it 5 times, in linens and rayons, and loved it every time. Thank you for making it a free download!!!!
The pattern sizing is generous. I normally take a size 8-10 in pattern sizes. Note: I am small, but not a petite size. I cut a size 8/10 and pin fit it before sewing since I wasn't sure of the design ease. My bust measures 32 inches. So, I had 8 inches of ease. The size 8/10 was way too big on me. It looked like a large, oversized shirt from the 80s. I then cut the pattern pieces down to a size 4/6. Now, I can actually see the blouse design. I also extended the center back in width by 1 5/8" for a self facing; I didn't want the extra bulk of an attached facing. Also, the "cut line" on the right back pattern piece is actually an overlap line, NOT a line for cutting. The next time that I make this pattern, I will add an armcye and slightly curve it under the arm to prevent the fabric from bunching.

I love this pattern. I french-seamed it, made it a little longer in back, and used a contrasting fabric for facing at wrists and neck.
I agree with other review, this is a bulky blouse. I realize it is intended to be generous, but the 4/6 swims on me. My daughter, 10/12, is modeling it. It is also pretty short, so add length to the ruffle if you are long waisted. Love the style. Keep those patterns coming!
