When you’re in the mood for a pretty
blouse but you don’t want it to be*too*
pretty, make yourself one of these
elegant beauties, adding ruffles and/or
the neck-tie as you wish. V-neck blouse
has a faced neckline with bust darts
turned into underbust gathers, an
optional tie, and is gathered onto a
slightly curved & raised waist seam.
Plain blouse buttons through the center
front, with 3/4 length sleeves, turn-back
cuffs and a deep hem, plus optional
side seam pockets for a jacket feel.
Ruffled blouse buttons through the
bodice only, and has gathered ruffles
applied on top of the waist seam, full
length sleeves and deep ruffled cuffs.
Choose between hip or tunic lengths
and mix up the sleeve, trim & neckline
options to make *your* perfect blouse.
Choose a soft, drape-y blouse-weight
fabric like silk, wool or rayon crepe,
georgette, rayon challis, chiffon, gauze,
handkerchief linen, or a soft all-over lace.
You can also use a lightweight knit fabric.

Love the pattern. I made three other muslins of similar types of blouse but none of them looked good on my middle aged body. I was so happy to see how flattering the vermeer blouse is. I've made two so far and have plans to make more. My standard adjustments were easy to translate onto the hot pattern. The blouse is super easy to assemble and the pieces fit together perfectly.
