Eclipse Shell Blouse
This style is great for lightweight soft fabrics; woven or jersey. Perfect for any kind of print or great in a plain also. It’s a style you can make again and again and make it look so different every time through your choice of fabrics and colours.
The pattern shows the short sleeve version, though you could lengthen or shorten the sleeve if you wish.
This blouse is aimed at an intermediate sewer. There’s nothing too tricky here though if you’ve made a garment or two before and your confidence is building. No zips, buttonholes, gathering, and just one button to sew on. The neck facings require a lightweight interfacing.
1. 30cm of 90cm wide fusible lightweight interfacing. Vilene H180 is a perfect weight. 2. 1x button for the back neck around 11mm.
