Liesl + Co - Afternoon Tea blouse Sewing Pattern - PDF
This is a PDF pattern. It will be delivered to you via email after you complete your purchase!
Perfect for an afternoon out with friends or a day at the office, this semifitted blouse features a fun chest detail that makes it extra special. Sew the blouse with contrasting fabrics for a color-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.
Suitable for drapey fabrics like crepe, rayon challis, charmeuse, georgette, lawn, and linen. For Fabric B, use a contrasting color, lace, or chiffon.
Coordinating thread, one 3/8" or 1/2" button or hook and eye closure for the back.
