Watermelon Adrienne

A review of Adrienne Blouse

Reviewed by Belle Citadel on 22nd August, 2020

This top is fun to make and fast to zip up – just a couple of hours. I haven’t seen any other review mention it, but there were issues with the sizing. The front and back pieces are exactly the same, which seems odd for a women’s top. There was no way it was going to work for my D cup bust (sewing D) and so I cut two different sizes for the front and back, as well as made a FBA in length. I kept the overall length the same and it hits my high hip, not a crop as in the description. This being said, it’s still a fun top to sew and I love the sleeves.

The construction method is quick and nicely thought out in terms of the finishing and sleeves. It’s pretty distinct, so I’m not sure how many of these I would need, but perhaps a black sweater knit one for winter would be fun? There are more details and pics on the Adrienne (and trousers) on my blog if you’re interested. 🙂
