Darts create a fitted silhouette without being too tight, with an optional tie belt to cinch the waistline. The Alma Blouse closes at the side with an invisible zipper.
All of the sleeve and neckline options work together to create nine different blouses from a single pattern! Your choice of cute cap sleeves, elbow-length sleeves or long sleeves with cuffs. For the neckline, choose from a simple rounded neckline, a contrast Peter Pan collar, or a notched neckline to frame your face.
Perfect for work, equally pretty for a night out!
