    5 out of 5 My new blouse : The Blouse


    This pattern was a love from first sight! I bought it since it was launched but I finally managed to sew it some days ago… I chose a double gause gray fabric with crowns that proved to be perfect for this project.
    I am totally satisfied with the fitting. The only change I made is in sleeves… I prefered to insert a larger elastic not at the end of the sleeve but approx. 1.5 cm above it, so this frill is being created.
    I highly recommend this pattern to beginner seamstresses as it doesn’t have any darts or difficult sewing tecniques.

    3 out of 5 I had a lot of issues with the fit


    I’ve made loads of shirts, but this one that I wanted to love gave me all sorts of fit issues mostly around the chest (I’m not a FBA sewist). The instructions are fab and very very beginner friendly, so a great pattern to try if you’ve never made a shirt before and want to give it a go. Given that it doesn’t have darts and is quite drapey I was surprised to have the issues that I did, maybe it’s a one off. More info on my blog

    Such a lovely pattern. Typically with The Avid Seamstress it is a classic, timeless piece and one that I will reach for many times again. My fabric choice was a viscose. The sizing was spot on. It is a relaxed fitting blouse, without bust darts, featuring a pretty Mandarin collar and button placket. I particularly like the 3/4 length sleeves that are elasticated.
    Fairly quick and simple to sew- The Avid Seamstress instructions are wonderful by the way, I am imagining this in a classic white cotton, I’m also pretty tempted to jump on the leopard print bandwagon with this one.. what do you think?
