Collar of dreams!

A review of Nina Lee Bakerloo Blouse and Dress

Reviewed by sew_polly_sew on 8th January, 2021

I have been obsessed with big collars for ages now and was dreaming of making my own, when my dreams were made with this gorgeous pattern! It is such an elegant design, with a big frilly collar and balloon sleeves, gathered at the cuff. It also has a dress option. I loved the frill detail and the key hole opening at the back. I made the top version in this lovely Atelier Brunette Double Gauze from Sew Me Sunshine and just love wearing it.

I made a size 14 and it fits me perfectly with no adjustments made. It was a pretty straight forward make, however the frill on the collar was a little tricky around the corners. Apart from that it came together really quickly and I can’t wait to make more!
