The Everyday Blouse

The Everyday Blouse is a pattern from Rachel Pinheiro from the blog House of Pinheiro and UpCraft Club that is being released today.

The pattern includes sizes from XXS to XXL and some lovely details that make this blouse really unique, like the neckline with elastic or the exposed side zipper.

I believe the name is very adequate for this pattern as this is a blouse that can be used for different occasions just by changing the print, the kind of fabric or only the accessories.

I made a size XS without modifications and I honestly love the fit of this blouse and I can assure that Gabriela from Chalk and Notch did a great work to make this pattern of great quality. I know I’ve said before how I like Gabriela’s work and it is really the truth, I like the way she works and the effort she puts in making each pattern the best pattern possible. This one is no exception.

Besides the details mentioned before (that I really love!), this pattern has bust and elbow darts. It was the first time I made elbow darts, but it is a nice detail for a ¾ sleeve and although it is not very visible, the fit is improved.

As soon as I saw the pattern I immediately knew which fabric I wanted to use. Just a few weeks before I had bought a laser cutted cotton fabric from here and I thought I would work well with this pattern. The thing is I love white blouses and this pattern has interesting details that makes the blouse stand out.

The instructions are clear and well written and you can get the pattern with a reduced price, so you have really good reasons to get a copy!

Have a wonderful week! 🙂
