The Maker’s Atelier Tiered Blouse – the floaty one
The Tiered Blouse is a feminine and fluid blouse with tiered or simple flared body with a round or V-neck. Make it in fluid fabrics for the ultimate floaty number, or go for cotton lawn to show the structure off. I reckon it would look great under a pair of dungarees to balance out the floaty shape.
Sizing: UK 4 – 20
Maison Fauve Tribeca Dress and Blouse – the chic one
The French sewing pattern company, Maison Fauve is known for delightful details, and Tribeca is no exception. If you like the idea of a romantic blouse but don’t want something too voluminous, this blouse is slightly fitted, for a feminine and comfortable drape. The optional decorative bias highlights the yoke band and is a stunning detail that will grow your sewing skills!

Fibre Mood Rhonda Top – the cleverly cut one
Streamlined with a romantic feel, the Rhonda Top is a little bit of pattern magic. The long panels at the front and back are highlighted by the shorter side panels. This clever pattern cutting allows for playful fabric usage, perhaps contrasting fabric for the side panels. Kate loves this one!

Designed for soft and flowy woven fabric, it has a voluminous shape and cup size options will help you achieve the perfect fit.
