Pattern Review: Petite Plus Wrap Jacket & Blouse 203

Threads magazine - 148 – April/May 2010

Style Tip: Make these pieces from coordinating fabrics for the perfect workday outfit.

This review was originally featured in Threads #148 (April/May 2010).

Petite Plus Wrap Jacket & Blouse 203

This pattern line is designed with the petite, fuller figure in mind. It fits those with narrow shoulders, D-cup bust, and a rounded tummy. The Wrap Jacket with two-piece sleeves and the sleeveless blouse are fairly easy to construct for a tailored look, and with 3⁄8-inch seam allowances, trimming is minimal. The wrap blouse can be made with or without sleeves. The instructions are well written and are easy for even a beginner to follow. The pattern also includes a quick way to sew the notch collar in four easy steps as well as a fitting guide. The guide explains how to choose a size and then lists the adjustment order. Each adjustment is clearly illustrated along the way.

(Sized 12–24 for busts 38–50 in.)
