Playlist on You Tube: How to sew a Blouse
This project is ideal for you if you want to progress from basic techniques. If you are just starting out I would suggest a few simple dresses, like my pinafore dresses first.
The cuff of the blouse can be finished with piping, lace insert or binding. The devil is in the detail as the methods change with each different finish. That is why there are some additional videos just showing these methods.
As fastening I am using the traditional buttons but you can use snap poppers. To make sure you get that right too there is also a short clip showing how to attach those poppers.
They are fab and so colourful and best of all easy to do!
You can also make this blouse as a boys shirt. Just use the additional long sleeve, which I borrowed from the boys shirt. The instructions for that are also on the project page.
The pattern comes in sizes 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5-6 & 6-7. Each pattern comes as individual PDF file making it easier to cut out and reducing paper waste. Just in case you are wondering, you do get all the sizes!
The cut is generous, the style is long so that this blouse can grow up with your girl. The size 6-7 will still fit a slender 8 year old!
The video instructions are simple and clear so you can just watch and sew. This blouse comes in an abundance of variations for which there are individual videos. The frocks & frolics project page 'Western Blouse' on frocksandfrolics.com has them all in one place. From introduction and assembling the pattern to the making the detailed video instructions leave nothing out.
To find the right size measure once around your child's chest.
