Just a classic

A review of Atelier Jupe Frida Blouse

Reviewed by Love, Lucie on 22nd June, 2022

Meet my new crush, the Frida Blouse by Atelier Jupe.

I treated myself to a paper copy of the pattern and was surprised to find the pattern pieces overlaying each other, meaning I needed to trace them out, something I had not done in quite a while. But I imagine it goes with their ethos of sustainability, keeping costs down and minimising waste.

The booklet covers several languages and the instructions were perfectly clear, with diagrams to help.

In addition to the instructions I incorporated a lined front yoke to keep everything super neat inside, and not just the lined back yoke that was in the pattern.

To lift my fabric  a little and show off the lovely sweep of the front yoke I included some old gold piping I had left over from a previous make.

I made the size 40 (UK size 12) which was is slightly above my bust measurement. It fits like a glove.

There’s loads more detail in my blog post.
