Classic yet comfortable, pretty yet practical, the Clara Blouse is an everyday top that’ll fit seamlessly into your wardrobe. Tucked into your favourite pencil skirt for a smart work look, or paired with jeans for an off-duty vibe, Clara is an ever-versatile pattern, perfect for office to evening to weekend wear.
The Clara Blouse features a pretty pleated round neckline, keyhole opening at the centre back, a stepped hem, and long sleeves with deep cuffs and continuous-bound placket cuff closures. Easy to wear tucked in or loose to suit your style, the Clara blouse has a relaxed cut with gentle curving at the side seams. With a dartless bodice, shaping at the bust is provided by the neckline pleats for a gentle, figure-skimming feel.
With a mixture of simple fit and interesting construction details, this pattern makes a fun challenge for anyone looking to build their skills – especially if your next step is shirt-making; the Clara cuffs are true shirt cuffs and make great practice!
