Sleeves of dreams

A review of Nexus Blouse

Reviewed by Hannah on 10th December, 2019

As soon as this pattern was released, I bought it. The reversible front/back, the buttons, the billowy sleeves…oh the billowy sleeves!

Thankfully it didn’t disappoint. After doing a toile, I decided to cut the cropped version but add some length. I knew I was using some precious fabric and didn’t want to risk an untidy curved hem. I also took a bit of length off the sleeves as I’m generally shorter than average for all limbs!

I made self covered buttons in two sizes. As recommended in the pattern for the bodice and slightly smaller for the sleeves.

I wore this for early Christmas with my family and it was so comfortable but felt “dressed up”. I think I prefer the buttons on the back which makes it slightly more complicated to get in and out of but it works!

Totally recommend this top!

Happy sewing. X
