More Normas

A review of Fibre Mood Norma Blouse

Reviewed by sewingfrenzy on 15th May, 2023

This was my first Fibre Mood pattern and I was impressed. I’ve made four. The first tester in an olive shirting. It was a lesson to adjust lengths before cutting. It’s a boxy style and I need a shirt to have more length. I also found the sleeves hit right at the elbow which I find uncomfortable. On the next Normas, I’ve lengthened the sleeves and the body. On the synthetic textured one I’ve added a tie by sewing the ends in the shoulder seam. My favourite is the linen print. The last one is a liberty cotton that was on sale.

I have enough Normas in the closet now, but I have bought more Fibre Mood patterns. I like how pared back they are and versatile. The direction are at just the right level.
