Michelle Sews - Tia Blouse
The clean and simple lines of the Tia Blouse make it a versatile wardrobe workhorse. A woven tee is one of those underrated pieces in one’s wardrobe that can quickly become a go-to piece. The Tia Blouse can be as noticeable as you choose to make it! Go with View A in a classic neutral shade for an understated basic tee, or make View B in a bold statement fabric for a tee that turns heads!
Sizes: 6-20 (B cup) and 16-30 (D cup)
These size ranges are based on different body proportions and bust cup sizes, but for the same height of 5’6″. The 6-20 size range is drafted for a sewists’ B cup, which means a difference of 2″ / 5 cm between your high bust and your full bust measurements. The 16-30 size range is drafted for a sewists’ D cup, which means a difference of 4″ / 10 cm between your high bust and your full bust measurements. (In sewing terms, your cup size may differ from the cup size you would buy in stores!).
For this pattern, please choose the pattern size for which the Bust measurement is nearest to your full bust measurement, and if that is a size between 16 and 20 (inclusive), use your high bust measurement to select the appropriate size range to purchase.
The Tia Blouse has a semi-fitted bust with a boxy fit through the waist, hitting a mid-hip length approximately 6″ (15cm) below the waist. There is roughly 4.5″ (11-12 cm) ease at the bust and 11″-12″ (28-30 cm) ease at the waist.
Medium weight viscose/rayon, Tencel (TM), cupro, linen, chambray and similar blends. The sleeves of view B are well suited to slightly more structured fabrics such as chambray, linen and cotton.
All views: one small button (3/8″ / 1 cm) or hook and eye, for the back neckline.
View B: Six small buttons for the cuff (3/8″ – 1/2″ / 1 – 1.2 cm)
