Liesl + Co. Afternoon Tea Blouse Paper Pattern
Perfect for an afternoon out with friends or a day at the office, this semi fitted blouse features a fun chest detail that makes it extra special. Sew the blouse with contrasting fabrics for a colour-blocked detail or choose lace or a sheer fabric for the inset stripe. This contemporary take on a vintage blouse eliminates the shoulder seam so the sleeves are easy and fun to sew. The inset panel forms a pretty chevron over the bracelet-length flounce sleeves, and the back features an easy keyhole opening with a button-and-loop closure. This pattern includes separate pieces for A/B, C, and D cups for ease of fitting.
