denia blouse

I went to Japan last year and the street-style there inspired me quite a lot. Particularly in Kyoto, where most women would be wearing the same outfit over and over: a loose top or jacket, a beret and some loose skirt or wide-legged trousers above the ankle. There was something very chic and casually elegant about this combination and I became obsessed with the silhouette.

Sources : Denia, Tello and Botanic inspirations.

The patterns volumes of this collection are directly inspired by this travel and all the things I have seen there.

I chose loose and destructured lines for Denia and Botanic patterns in order to get easy to wear garments with style. According to the fabric, colors and patterns you choose,  there are a lot of opportunities to make different options and wear them!

The Tello Jacket is directly inspired by the utility jacket: my grandfather wore one almost everyday during my childhood! I decided to use the same base and make some changes in order to offer a modern take on this great jacket.

These are all the inspirations that lead me to create this chic and casually elegant Japanese-like silhouette. Perfect for the up-coming summer… and later as well! How about you? How do you come up with your sewing projects inspiration? Trips, colours, shapes, magazines… Let me know!

And last but not least, I’m really excited to introduce the lovely Denia blouse!

Denia is the easiest of the new patterns: this would be an excellent project for a beginner seamstress. It features a round collar, short cuffed sleeves and buttons in the back. The wide panels can be tied in a knot or left loose. It’s available as a PDF pattern in English, French and Spanish.

For fabric, we recommend light to medium weight such as cotton poplin, batiste, linen, viscose, chambray… Use stripes or color block to highlight the original seams.

Depending on the fabric you choose, Denia can be either casual (think cotton or linen) or more dressed-up (viscose, silk).

I was also inspired by my Japan trip for the Denia blouse: I wanted something stylish but with a very classic line at the same time. The volume is key for this pattern: loose-fitted, the ties help shape the blouse the way you want to.

Stripes were obvious to me as soon as I started working on the pattern: it would be so great to play with horizontal and vertical stripes for the many pieces. I used a cotton fabric with lurex stripes from Un chat sur un fil for the presentation pictures.

I also made a very light viscose Denia (fabric from Henry et Henriette) with contrasting bias piping and a small chest pocket. And I can’t stop thinking about a color block Denia for summer…

This will be the perfect top for summer as it’s loose-fitted and will look stylish with everything. How about you pair it with the Botanic trousers, the Rosari skirt or the Port shorts?
