Petal Sleeve Wrap Blouse
I’ve been wanting to sew this pattern since it came out. I love the high-low hem, and the soft curve that it creates with the sleeves hem on the original garment:
Problem is: I barely wear long-sleeve blouses, except under a blazer. But I figured the petal sleeve would be a nice match to the bodice wrap. Enter Rhonda’s drafting tutorial, a cute fabric by Vlisco and a matching piece by Joel Dewberry. The colors are much more vibrant IRL.
- graded to a 44 based on high bust measurement
- 1-inch FBA
- lengthened by 5 cm/2 in
- collar bias sewn on the outside with contrast fabric instead of the inside
- finished with French seams.
This is a nice and easy pattern (no buttons, no zipper, no pockets). However, keep in mind that this is a wrap blouse so it behaves like a wrap dress, i.e. you might be seen with a bare belly in windy weather 🙂 Other than that, I like it.
