10 Blouse Patterns to Sew This Spring

Blouses are probably the most popular garment to sew and particularly lend themselves to spring sewing. This versatile make can be styled in lots of different ways and gives your wardrobe an instant refresh. As the weather gets milder it’s quite nice to wear a blouse without all the extra layers on top, so I have searched for the most beautiful blouses with long or 3/4 length sleeves. I hope you enjoy browsing this selection of blouse sewing patterns – all from indie designers!

This blouse is going on my sewing list and many of yours it seems as it has been our bestseller since adding it to the shop. The Vivian Shao Chen Nepheline Blouse is a voluminous, billowy, oversized style that looks great tucked into high-waisted jeans. The sleeve tucks add shape and texture and the pattern comes with B and D cup options, the latter includes bust darts. It will be a staple made up in a crisp white cotton or linen and full of spring vibes made up in a floral print.

I do love blouses with a romantic feel, and the Sew House Seven Regalia Blouse very much sits in that category! The front and back yokes are just begging for colour blocking, print mixing, embroidery, or some directional stripe play. You can sew your blouse with a sweet tie to create a little shaping or tuck it into jeans. I think it would be a useful piece to have in your handmade wardrobe.

If you are drawn to patterns with clever and interesting construction, this would be my pick for you! The much-anticipated woven version of Named’s bestselling Kielo pattern offers a 3-in-1 design that takes the unique wrap detail we all loved on Kielo and gives us loads more woven options to play with.

You might have passed over the top version of the Lilja pattern, but I think it is worth a closer look. You can sew any of the variations either sleeveless or with bohemian, ¾-length puff sleeves. You can also choose a round or square neckline or a combination of both. The round neckline can be finished with either a facing or a binding with a back vent and ties. I love that you can choose to tie it in the front or back, so you can change the look with your mood!

The Sewing Patterns by Masin Amalfi Blouse is a romantic raglan sleeve top that features voluminous bishop sleeves with a bound sleeve cuff. It’s on my 2024 sewing list… maybe in a pretty Liberty fabric floral. It will be light and airy to wear and makes a statement, while still being quite soft in its style. You could also easily lengthen the pattern to turn it into a dress.

If you’re a sucker for details, the Fibre Mood Ermine Blouse is right up your street. The striking triangular yoke features sweet gathers at the bottom – a detail that looks more impressive than it is to sew. It has simple set-in sleeves, a round neckline, a separate button placket, and bias tape for the neckline finish. Go with a plain fabric if you want to show that cool triangular yoke off!

If you’re a fan of simple elegance, this would be my pattern recommendation. The Liesl + Co Geneva Blouse has a lot going for it but is far from fussy. The deep-but-not-revealing V-neck is a universally flattering cut and will be comfortable to wear as it is not low cut. This pattern has two sleeve options: a 3/4-length lantern sleeve and a gentle 3/4-length bell sleeve. The great news about Geneva is that it includes cup sizes (A/B, C and D) to help you get a great fit.

Are you pretty new to sewing and want a pattern that is easy to sew but also grows your skills with every stitch? Well, the much-loved Wilder Gown pattern has a lesser-known blouse version that is a bit of you! It features easy raglan sleeves, a gathered neckline with tie and a loose-fitting body that avoids fitting dramas.

Maison Fauve is known for chic, elevated design details that make their patterns so interesting. The Bellini Blouse is one of my favourite pieces from the new ‘Fauve Romance‘ collection. The pleats at the shoulders and back of this blouse make it feel like a couture you can wear every day. The sleeveless option makes this blouse work for all seasons so it’s a great pattern to add to your stash.

If pretty blouses are not your jam, take a look at the Puff and Pencil Tie Waist Blouse. With a thoroughly modern feel,  this pull-over blouse has a casing across the waist at the front and back that you can pull in tighter for more definition or leave the ties looser for a sporty-fresh look. This version is combined with the classic Cone Sleeve which gives just the right amount of flare.

A dramatic sleeve is all you need to brighten your spring wardrobe, and it doesn’t get any better than this. The Veronica Tucker Freya Dress and Blouse is a statement piece with an elasticised, tri-section puff sleeve with three length options. I reckon this would look really fun worn under a pair of dungarees or simply tucked into a pair of jeans. You’ll want to put these sleeves on every garment you sew!

  1. Hi! Great patterns! My favourite is probably the Puff & Pencil one. Just a head’s up: in the image of that pattern it says Maison Fauve.
