|Pattern Description: |
A simple peasant blouse with raglan sleeves and a drawstring in casing.
I made a size 10 because I didn't want it to be too roomy.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? The design is the same, but mine is made from a soft flowy fabric so looks different.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy. I don't think most sewers will need the directions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I wanted a classic peasant blouse pattern, to make out of a luxurious fabric, like the couture peasant blouses in silk and chiffon. I decided to use chiffon in a rich color. The pattern is very flattering, with the neckline sitting very wide on your shoulders, sort of held on the cap of your shoulder bone. This presents a problem with bra straps, though, particularly if you want to wear the drawstring open. So I added lingerie guides, which is great!
Polyester chiffon. The fabric photographs very badly, but is really a rich color.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I changed the sleeves to be full length with a slit. I added lingerie guides, which I made out of vintage rayon seam binding. I hid the guides and little snaps under the dark part of the plaid pattern. I also made handkerchief rolled hems in the hem and sleeves, rather than the plain hem, because I wanted it to be luxurious.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again and would highly recommend it. It is one of my favorite blouses.
