Norma Blouse PDF
A review of Norma Blouse
The Norma Blouse was my first ever Fibre Mood pattern. I have bought the magazines a few times but been put off by all the overlapping patterns and the tracing out etc. I loved the look of this simple blouse so decided to go for it as a PDF.
The good points of the PDF are that it’s easy to print on A0 or A4 and also seam allowances are marked on the pattern, so no need to add them.
The Norma Blouse is a simple button v-neck blouse with some beautiful puff sleeves. The instructions on the Fibre Mood website were great and it was a relatively simple sew.
I used a chambray fabric which I had in my stash and it turned out just as I hoped it would. Any cotton fabric would be beautiful in this and is of course easy to sew with. I bought some beautiful buttons to contrast with the creamy yellow fabric and I am very pleased with the results.
I will definitely make another, maybe add some more gathers to the sleeves, or maybe pleat the sleeves instead of gathering. The only other alternation I would make to my next one is that I would add maybe 1-2″ on the length as I am long in the body and just prefer a little bit more coverage.
