When you’re in the mood to wear something
pretty with a cool-girl vibe, reach for one of
these beauties, perfect for light to mediumweight
crisp or fluid fabrics, like crepe, voile, chambray,
shirting, gauze, charmeuse or rayon; these also
work gorgeously in knits like silk(y) jersey, rayon,
linen or modal.
Loose-fit, pull-on, off-the-shoulder blouses
have a neckband that’s fitted at the front and
elasticated through the sides and back; the
bodice has a gentle A-line cut with bust darts.
Choose your favorite raglan sleeve length;
3/4 with a tied cuff, or just above the elbow
with a deep elasticated cuff. Blouses finish
with a narrow shirt-tail hem at the upper thigh.
Chest patch pockets are optional; we’ve also
included an optional internal stretchy shelf
bra as well as halter straps for easy wearing.
You’ll be amazed at how wearable these
stunning blouses really are...tuck them into
a high-waist tailored skirt or pant, wear them
untucked over a skinny, flared or palazzo
pant, or try them runway-style worn loose
over a matching midi-length A-line skirt.
For both versions in all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
you’ll need around 2 3/4 yards/252cm of fabric, plus enough
1½” or 3.8cm wide soft elastic to go 2/3 of the way around
the widest part of your shoulders; for the shelf bra in all
sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 you’ll need around
½ yard or 46cm of VERY stretchy knit (try a cotton/LycraTM knit
or similar); you’ll also need enough 1½” or 3.8cm wide soft
elastic to circle under your bust. Add a scrap of interfacing
for the front neckband (and the pocket openings if you’re
using them). Fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
