This top is very easy to sew, but the fit is terrible for my body type. I have a fuller bust and this top does not allow for that. It cuts me off right at the bust. Also, the armpits are quite tight. The kind of 'drop shoulder' does not work for me.
I'm sorry this one wasn't a great fit. if you'd like, feel free to email us for some advice on making pattern adjustments to ensure your next make fits like a glove :)
So far, I have made the pattern up as offered. Sleeves and shoulders were a bit snug for me so another linen fan took the blouse and modeled around Memphis with it. I made a second with some modifications to the pattern and it fit perfectly. Having modeled it over another dress, I decided to put a gathered deep ruffle around the bottom and turned it into a dress. Next, I made a third in some leftover signature linen that finally gave me the blouse I originally started to make. This pattern is definitely one to use in many variations.
I found this blouse (after downloading the adobe program) and following the step-by-step instruction (per the tutorial) to be my absolute favorite style top of anything that I have made, so far. It is a perfect top for jeans, leggings or the Moroccan pant (have made these too). I have made mostly short versions of this, but have recently made a longer (tunic length) which is nice too, esp. with the leggings.
I just downloaded and printed this pattern. It's beautiful and the instructions are clear. I LOVE the way you can exclude sizes you don't need. Such a clever way to package patterns. Can't wait to sew this up tomorrow!
The pattern file needs to be opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader to show the instructions. For Apple computers right click on file, choose "open with" find Adobe Acrobat Reader and click.
Lovely looking patter that I would like to makeâ€¦ but there are no instructions. Your Anon. commenter is right - there are no layout or sewing instructions. Perhaps that's why there are no comments or photos of finished garments for this item. Also, can you add a photo page to the pdf download so we have an idea of what the finished product looks like. - Many thanks for the time you put into your excellent patterns.
