Buy the Bloomsbury Blouse sewing pattern from Nina Lee. Bloomsbury is a high-necked, Edwardian-inspired blouse for the romantic in all of us. Choose to make narrow ruffles and appear dainty and demure, or opt for an unequivocally flamboyant and fun look with bold wide ruffles.
The blouse features a high collar, a yoked bodice with two ruffle options, button-back fastening, bracelet-length sleeves and the option to add ruffles to the collar and/or sleeves. Whilst care is required when sewing the yoke and collar curves, this pattern should be suitable for an ambitious beginner who isn’t afraid of taking their sewing to the next stage.
