The Patina Blouse works best with woven fabrics in light or medium weights. As the pattern includes a short or longer sleeve the results of your make can vary depending on the sleeve choice and fabric choice. Go for something lightweight like a viscose which is a great fabric for all year round - The shorter sleeve version in a viscose would be great for warmer weather and the longer sleeve layered with a sweater vest or cardigan would be great in winter.
Other fabrics that would work well and look great include linens, cotton blends, double gauze, twill, brushed cottons, lightweight cotton denims, check fabrics and so many more!
The Patina Blouse is loose without being oversized. The sleeves are full so there is a lot of room through the biceps and shoulder area. If your chest, waist, and hips fall into different sizes you may want to blend between multiple sizes to get your perfect fit! The pattern was drafted using sample measurements for a height of 5’6” [168 cm] and a B-cup bra size.
The free neckline 'add-on' to the pattern offers varying collar neckline heights so you have a bit more flexibility with the overall fit depending on where you want it.
