Classes In Depth: Simple Summer Blouses

Summer Sewing should be simple. Easy to make, and easy to wear. A few basic patterns you can make again and again in pretty fabrics. That's what our Simple Summer Blouses class is all about!

In this 2-session class starting June 24, you'll make your perfect summer blouse! Ideal for the advanced beginner or for the experienced sewist who just wants to take life easy.

You'll get a list of recommended patterns to choose from; no fussy details, just cool, comfy blouses and tops and the best, easiest construction techniques.

Pair your pattern with a soft cotton lawn or shirting and you'll be sipping lemonade in the shade in no time!

The pattern used for the blouse above is New Look 6513, a cute popover top with tucks and hidden bust shaping.

Here are a few more patterns from the recommended list. McCall's 6563, a bias-cut top with front neck drape:

Simplicity 1693, a basic shell with fun options:

New Look 6086, a tunic and tank with a great shape and a flattering side bust dart.

 And finally, Colette Jasmine. This cute tie-neck top from independent pattern company Colette has a cute shape and great fit.

You can find all the recommended patterns on the supply list for this class! Just ask us!
