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!
