Every girl needs an easy-to-wear,
easy-to-make blouse that can be
pretty, dressy or casual. These are
perfect in fluid blouse weight fabrics
like charmeuse, georgette, rayon,
crepe, or panne velvet, but they also
work in drape-y knits like rayon,
bamboo, or ITY, silk(y) or linen jersey.
Pull-over, relaxed-fit blouses have a
center front seam, a wrapped front &
‘V’ neckline. Front hemline is twisted
to drape; back has an inverted pleat.
Mix up the details to get your perfect
look...add the chic necktie or shirt-tail
back hem; choose classic short or
full length sleeves with elastic cuffs.
These chic blouses are a great way
to create a fabulous outfit...for the
perfect date-night or party top, make
one in something sparkly and wear it
over a slinky pencil; try a silky-blouse
version with jeans; or make one as a
T-shirt to wear with a crisply tailored pant.
