Summer Blouse

I made this years ago, from linen. The fabric is almost tissue-thin, ideal for muggy summer days.

I made a couple of them, actually. Okay, a few. More than a few, although at least two of them I adapted to be dresses, and the truth is I don’t know how many I made.

I don’t really like the ones that are dresses. I plan to unmake those.

In general, I really like this pattern a lot. It’s actually somewhat flattering, and easy to wear.

It’s from a book by Heather Ross called Weekend Sewing.

Anyway, this is a very easy sewing pattern I’d recommend trying. The book has other cute stuff in it, too, although I seem to recall mistakes in some of the patterns and instructions, so be sure to seek out errata.
