Suggested fabrics: All kinds of fabrics work, but it goes without saying that your statement sleeves will stand out more in a stiffer fabric, such as poplin, raw silk, nylon, organza, etc. Also, organza blouses worn with a spaghetti strap top underneath are a huge trend right now. Would you prefer a lighter fabric? You can turn Norma into something a little flowier and less ‘big’ by choosing a cotton voile, muslin or thin viscose.

Sizing: EU 32 – 58 / US 0 – 26 / UK 4 – 30 (approx. UK 6 – 26/28, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.

Notions: Thread; iron-on interfacing, max. 70 cm; 4 buttons, 1.1 cm diameter.

Note: Seam allowances are included in this pattern. The copy shop file we print for you shows the cutting lines only (not cutting lines and stitching lines) to make it easier to know what size to cut out.

More Normas

This was my first Fibre Mood pattern and I was impressed. I've made four. The first tester in an olive shirting. It was a lesson to adjust lengths before cutting. It's a boxy style and I need a shirt to have more length. I also found the sleeves hit right at the elbow which I find uncomfortable. On the next Normas, I've lengthened the sleeves and the body. On the synthetic textured one I've added a tie by sewing the ends in the shoulder seam. My favourite is the linen print. The last one is a liberty cotton that was on sale.

I have enough Normas in the closet now, but I have bought more Fibre Mood patterns. I like how pared back they are and versatile. The direction are at just the right level.

Fabulous sleeves!

This is a fabulous pattern! I chose this gorgeous polycotton from Minerva.com and it was a really easy sew! Having seen other reviews, I chose to raise the V neckline by one inch but other than that I followed the pattern. Took an afternoon to complete. Very pleased with the results. #sewnshownseated

Norma Blouse PDF

The Norma Blouse was my first ever Fibre Mood pattern. I have bought the magazines a few times but been put off by all the overlapping patterns and the tracing out etc. I loved the look of this simple blouse so decided to go for it as a PDF.

The good points of the PDF are that it's easy to print on A0 or A4 and also seam allowances are marked on the pattern, so no need to add them.

The Norma Blouse is a simple button v-neck blouse with some beautiful puff sleeves. The instructions on the Fibre Mood website were great and it was a relatively simple sew.

I used a chambray fabric which I had in my stash and it turned out just as I hoped it would. Any cotton fabric would be beautiful in this and is of course easy to sew with. I bought some beautiful buttons to contrast with the creamy yellow fabric and I am very pleased with the results.

I will definitely make another, maybe add some more gathers to the sleeves, or maybe pleat the sleeves instead of gathering. The only other alternation I would make to my next one is that I would add maybe 1-2" on the length as I am long in the body and just prefer a little bit more coverage.

Fibre Mood Norma Blouse

I made this blouse for my Auntie who chose a really pretty floral fabric for me to make her a top out of. The Fibre Mood Norma immediately sprung to mind, it has lovely details from the statement sleeves to the elegant v-neck and button placket. The only adjustments I made to the pattern were to lengthen it by about 4cm, something that was really easy to do.

I really love the sleeves on this top, especially the cuff detail. The only change I would make next time would be to make the cuff slightly deeper as it isn't that prominent. This was a lovely pattern to make with clear instructions and the sewing process was really enjoyable, I'll definitely be making it again for myself.

Sleeves of dreams

This is the Norma Blouse from Fibremood Magazine Book 9

It features lavish three-quarter length balloon sleeves that are full at the shoulders, has puffed wrists and gathered seams. So it is pretty much bang on trend right now!!

A very much ‘going out’ type blouse rather than ‘working from home’, which is my life right now, but one can dream!

Those of you that know the pattern will recognise that I’ve made a few changes, or more like ‘additions’. Not that there was anything wrong with the pattern. I made up a size 38, straight up with no modifications to the fit except lengthening the bodice by 2.5 inches. I could see on Instagram that it was rather cropped. I was concerned about the lack of bust darts, but I shouldn’t have been.

There's more details about lining the bodice and the hacks I carried out on my blog post here.

It's a pattern I'll be returning to again!!
