Sleeveless blouse where the shoulder yoke extends slightly over the shoulder to the front and there is a single pocket.
Ottobre 34 through 52.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were fine. Ottobre does not provide diagrams only written instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the simple style. I don't think this style of top ever goes out of fashion.
I loved the drafting of this pattern - the collar and collar stand came together beautifully.
Bamboo woven bought 3 years ago from The Bamboo Fabric Store. There is a beautiful texture woven into the fabric. It frayed easily so I did french seams on the side seams. Otherwise the fabric was beautiful to work with and washed and pressed like a charm.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the pattern at waist level by about 2 inches.
I did not sew the top button or buttonhole on the collar stand (as I will never do it up).
I sewed a double yoke following the instructions in The Readers Digest Guide to Sewing (page 410).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I plan to sew this again in a swiss dot cotton voile. I highly recommend this pattern.
Love this blouse - more photos on my blog.
I have made my second top in swiss dot cotton voil and the photos are here.
