Two versions of nexus blouse

A review of Papercut Patterns Nexus Blouse

Reviewed by Eliza-sew-little on 28th July, 2021

I’ve made 2 versions of this blouse. First was the longer one with the cuff sleeves , buttons at the front, from a light weight viscose.
It’s a nice blouse and the sleeves have a nice swish.
I had to raise the neckline and although looks fine when standing it’s still too low.
For the second version ( pink) I used double gauze and 2 back pieces. Top is reversible anyway and I liked the round neck better ( but having the buttons at the back, on me it looked like I was wearing my top backwards)

it was also the cropped version and a used visible bias banding at the neck and 3 covered buttons at the side.
this feels much better. I wore it today over a sleeveless dress when it got cool. Works well.
