Child/Teen Obélie Blouse
£7.50 – £14.50
Buy the Child/Teen Obélie Blouse sewing pattern from Petits D’om. This blouse for children and teens features a bib and gathers at the front. The bib can be embroidered, decorated with ribbons, or made with another fabric. The front neckline has a unique ’rounded square’ shape, and there is a slit at the back (optional for larger sizes) closed by a fine cord or ribbon, button and loop, or hook and eye. The long sleeves are flared at the bottom and gathered at the cuffs with elastic for a nice shape. Or you can sew gathered cap sleeves, which can be embellished with your choice of trim, such as lace or mini pompoms.

A slightly heavy, fluid fabric, such as viscose, will give your blouse a very nice finish. You can also sew it in double gauze, Liberty, plumetis, cotton satin, batiste, tencel. The lining of the cap sleeves must be cut from a fine fabric such as Liberty.
If a woven fabric is used for the bib, the rest can be sewn in fine jersey with a nice drape (such as viscose, bamboo or linen jersey). Thick jerseys should be avoided, especially for the version with cap sleeves. Be careful, however, when mixing stretch and non-stretch fabrics, as it will be more difficult to sew.
