Breezy Blouse

Regular price $27.50 AUD Sale

Liesl & Co

This easy-to-sew and easy-to-wear pull-on, loose-fitting, sleeveless blouse features a keyhole back opening, side panels to provide a contrast fabric option, darts for shaping, and separate pattern pieces for A/B, C, and D cups to enhance fit. The pattern eliminates side seams for a fun and unusual take on a slightly boxy top, and it has a gentle shaped hem and bias facings at the neck and arms. This is a great pattern to showcase a favorite fabric.

Suggested Fabrics

This pattern works best with drapey woven fabrics such as silk, loosely woven cottons, double gauze, linen, rayon, and crepe. Pair two different fabrics for the front/back and side panels.

Notions

Coordinating thread, one 3/8" button, featherweight fusible interfacing.
