Buy the Aila Blouse sewing pattern from Fibre Mood. As a slightly oversized blouse with a collar and collar band, yoke and gathers at the back – Aila is a wonderful addition to your wardrobe. The shaped sleeves make this is a simple project and give the blouse a playful, relaxed fit. Wear Aila with jeans, trousers, or a skirt, either tucked in or comfortably out. Is oversized not really your thing? Just make Aila a size (or two!) smaller. Be sure to check the size chart first to make sure there’s enough wiggle room.
This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

Suggested fabrics: The blouse will drape gracefully over the shoulders and look less voluminous made in fabric with a fluid drape, such as woven viscose (crêpe), Tencel, etc. Does the oversized boyfriend look strike your fancy? If so, choose a somewhat structured fabric to give Aila a little more body. Chambray, poplin, linen, and cotton twill are all great options. Aila looks beautiful in solids but also works just as well in a print, e.g., stripes, polka dots, checks, floral, etc.
