A Striped Adrienne

A review of Adrienne Blouse

Reviewed by Sew Dainty on 2nd April, 2021

I now understand the reason why there is so much hype over this blouse!

It’s easy to fit, quick and easy to sew and looks amazing.

The statement sleeves are the key feature. I took out 4″ from the fullness of the sleeves (using the adjustment markings on the pattern) and feel that they still give me the fantastic wow factor without it being overwhelming on my small frame.

I didn’t find that it was a cropped length as described, which is good (for me). I also notice that when looking through the hashtag #adrienneblouse on social media, the neckband sits either relatively high (like mine) or fairly low (as in the sample picture on the model for the pattern). Not sure why there is such a variation as this is not a pattern option – I guess it depends on the stretch in the fabric that you are using.

I’m so pleased that I used a stripe fabric for this make, I love how it turned out and it’s so wearable and comfy.
