The Perfect Blouse: Two Perfect Blouses Wrap-up

Video: Threads magazine

Sewing instructor Sandra Miller takes a look at “two perfect blouses” as she wraps up The Perfect Blouse series.

Two perfect blouse patterns, endless choices

Sandra worked from two Cutting Line Designs shirt patterns: The Blouse Perfected and Easy. Ageless. Cool. The techniques she shared can be used with many other shirt patterns.

You can make the men’s style shirt or the camp shirt many times over and for just about any occasion. Plus, you get to choose which features you want to include or leave out of your creations.

Select your shirt features

Choose options for a camp-style faced collar and front, collar with collar band, or no collar. Make the shirt long sleeve or short sleeve. Give it a sleeve placket and cuff, or a flat-felled seam and clean-finished sleeve hem. Include a chest pocket or a pocket with a pencil holder partition, or leave off a pocket altogether. Hem the shirt by simply turning it up or consider creating a vented mitered hem. You will find even more choices as you work with your chosen pattern.

Why not make two perfect blouses?
