Style tip: Think of the blouse neckline facings as a blank canvas for embellishment.

This review was originally featured in Threads #167 (June/July 2013). If this pattern is no longer readily available via the pattern company, try searching online for the pattern name and number, or try Etsy.com or eBay.com.

Simplicity 1718

This Project Runway pattern includes a tunic with fun neckline and sleeve variations; a calf-length, six-gore skirt with a trumpet hemline; and a wide-legged, side-zip pant. The pieces offer many possibilities. Make the tunic sleeveless or with sleeves: threequarter length, finished with a wide ruffle, or full-length gathered into a narrow cuff. Neckline options include keyhole or V-neck. Appliquéd neckline facings have curved or straight outer edges. The directions, diagrams, and pattern markings are clear and easy to follow. The sample blouse was sewn in silk double georgette with silk shantung neckline facings and a hand-embroidered embellishment.

(Sized Misses’ 4-20 for busts 29.5-42 in. and hips 31.5-44 in.)

Style Tip: Think of the blouse neckline facings as a blank canvas for embellishment.
