Iím looking for a plus-size pattern for a womenís short-sleeved button-down blouse that has a collar and darts in the front and back. The blouses I own like this are made of cotton.

Iíve made patterns for tank tops and pants but the darts are intimidating me for a blouse so Iím looking for a pattern. Iíve searched for hours on line and canít find what Iím looking for Ė Ďblouseí means so many different things so I donít know if Iím using the correct term but Ďtopí doesnít give me what I want when I put that in the search.

Does anyone know of a pattern for this type blouse? Thanks.

Try "button-down shirt". It may be long sleeved so you would need to cut the sleeves to the length desired.

Let's use a picture as a starting point. What do you like or dislike about this one? (Sorry that my work computer makes clickable links too complicated. Just copy and paste the URL below.)

EDIT: Never mind. Same suggestion in post above this one.

The Petite Plus 104 isnít exactly what I was looking for but I like it a lot. I just wonder how difficult it will be to increase the ďWaist, Tummy, HipĒ measurement.

I sewed about 25 years ago then stopped and started again recently. I like the Butterick patterns but I used one years ago and I remember it being a bit tricky. Anyone else think so or have they changed over the years?

Also, 5538 says itís designed for fluid fabrics and I want to use a cotton or cotton blend. Would it still work?

How do I get my back shoulder width measurement - I don't have anyone to help me measure.

I love, love Peggy Sagers #600. Watch her webcast on factory techniques for blouses. He sizing is not like the big 4. Once you find the sizng, this is so easy! I can't tell you how many blouseshave made with this pattern in different varations! Like everyone else, I would never have purchased this pattern from the picture on the envelope. As far as the sizing goes... her patterns are absolutley the best for me as far as shoulders and necklines. Just love her sizing..but it is a challenge till you find your size,at least for me. I am a huge fan of silihoutte patterns..and Peggy of course! :)

I have Vogue 7903. The darts make it extremely easy to fit bust, tummy, hips and swayback.
