mao collar

Have you tried your Carme blouse yet? There are just a few steps to finish now and you’ll be ready to wear your lovely creation out on the street…
I don’t know about you, but sewing the collar has always been kind of stressful for me. What if it doesn’t fit into the neckline? And if the fabric doesn’t lay flat?
With this method of attaching the collar (thanks so much to Anna from the blog Paunnet for suggesting it while she was testing the pattern!), collars are going to be so easy now…

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday!

Here is round 2 of the testers versions of the Carme blouse pattern!
Read about the first part here.
Fiona from Diary of a Chain Stitcher chose a white cotton lawn, breezy and with a nice drape, to make her Carme. That will be such a great blouse to wear in spring and summer. It also shows beautifully the pin tucks details.
Like the busy seamstress she is, Sonia from La Pequeña Aprendiz found the time to make 2 Carme: one blouse and one dress variation. This is so lovely! And see how she incorporated the piping around the yoke: genious idea!
I hope these lovely ladies have inspired you!
On Friday, we’ll discuss the Sew-Along schedule.

Thank you all for the amazing reception to the Carme blouse over the first weekend! Your comments (and your orders of course!) were so nice, I’m really touched!
So for those who have ordered the pattern or need some inspiration to get it, let’s see the beautiful versions of the pattern testers (second part is coming on wednesday).
Go read all the details about their Carme blouse on their blogs:

Merche from Aventuras de costuras, made this beautiful cashmere print blouse with a white contrasting yoke. I don’t know about you but I want to make one lie that as soon as possible.

The master of Liberty fabric, Kirsty from Top Notch, used this beautiful blue and green Liberty. It feels really romantic and easy going.

What a delicate and feminine fabric! Andrea from Stitch Parade chose this pretty cotton voile to sew her Carme blouse. A detail I love: the buttons and topstitching in red!
See you Wednesday for part 2…

I’m really happy to present the brand new pattern: the Carme blouse!
This is a casual, and yet feminine, blouse with a button placket, a pin-tucked yoke, a small mao collar and long gathered sleeves that can be rolled up with the sleeve tab.

I wanted to design a blouse that you could wear everyday and still look elegant. With your favourite pair of trousers or your favourite skirt, it will be perfect to wear from the morning to work until the night for a drink, or on the weekend walking in the city.

I really hope you’ll love the pattern as much as I do! I’m preparing a series of video tutorials so you don’t have to feel intimidated by the yoke detail and the button placket. The pattern is for an intermediate level, but with the tutorials, an advanced beginner can easily make it.
Buy the pattern here: Carme blouse pattern.
Have a great weekend!
