Sewing Tip: Understitch the collar edges to maintain a sharp periphery.

This review was originally featured in Threads #186 (August/September 2016).

New Look 6394

The mix-and-match details on this versatile blouse pattern are fun to contemplate. The five views offer two lengths and have bust darts, curved hemlines, and a pleated or darted back. The neckline choices are a convertible collar finished with neckline and front facings, or a band collar with a self-faced front placket. This pattern is suitable for cotton, cotton blends, tissue linen, linen blends, and synthetic fabrics with drape and a comfortable hand.

(Sized Misses’ 8-18 for busts 31.5-40 in.)

Sewing Tip: Understitch the collar edges to maintain a sharp periphery.
