Cara — Cara Blouse with Oversized Pockets Pattern

Outfit your carefree days in this relaxed linen top. Uncomplicated boxy shape with a loose fit, rounded neckline, loose sleeves - this is an ideal item for everyday wear that will keep you cozy all year long. When working with a shape this simple, it's all about the details. That's why we decided to style it with two oversized patch pockets to turn it into something special.

Great top
Reviewer: Jacqueline

I LOVE this top, I am about to make my 4th. I have left off the pockets to make a the that looks slightly different. I love the fit and it fits with my clothing aesthetic. I will keep making them.

Another great pattern from FS; Thank you!
Reviewer: ANNE

I just love these patterns that the FS provides FOR FREE! I have only made one of these tops so far, but think that this one we be a good candidate for a button placard down the back, just for added interest (which will be easy to adjust pattern for myself). The big pockets are great, but I double-seamed them at each of the top corners so they do not pull thru the fabric, with wear.

Great Pattern
Reviewer: gillian

This is the second top that I have made using Fabric Store linen and patterns. I made the AUGUSTINA top and it went together so easily it gave me the confidence to try this one. Guess what - this pattern is just as easy! I made the 8-10 which is my normal size and it fit perfectly. the directions on the tutorial were really helpful. I feel like I'm going to sewing school - next up the Genia top!
