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!

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

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% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
