Lilian Blouse PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £11.50


Sew a beautiful blouse with a shawl collar detail with the Lilian Blouse PDF pattern!

The Lilian Blouse is a satisfying project, featuring buttons, a lovely shawl collar and a choice of three sleeves: short, 3/4 length or a full-length sleeve with a narrow cuff.

You get two blouses in one with this pattern: sew up the double-ended darts at the front and back for a beautifully fitted version, or ignore the darts to create a contemporary boxy shape.

Wear Lilian over jeans for a great everyday look, or try the fitted version with the Ultimate Trousers or tucked into the Peggy Trousers or Ultimate Pencil Skirt for a touch of vintage.

Lilian is perfect in a light to medium weight fabric with good drape, such as viscose or crepe. If you’re sewing the fitted version with the extra darts, you could also use a cotton lawn for a crisp look – it’ll be easier to sew too!

Fabric Suggestions
Light to medium weight fabrics with some drape, such as rayon, viscose or crepe. If you’re sewing version 1, with the double-ended darts, you could also use cotton lawn for a really crisp look.

Sizing & Fabric Requirements

The Lilian Blouse is sized between UK sizes 6-30 and is split into two different blocks: sizes 6-20 (B cup) and sizes 18-30 (D cup). See the size charts (last 4 images above) for details on fabric requirements.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format) in all sizes
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet

The Lilian Blouse is either 24 A4/US letter pages or 1 A0 copyshop page (sizes 6-20), or 27 A4 pages, 30 US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop pages (size 18-30).

If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% scale (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
