Create the perfect blouse! Everyone’s wardrobe is filled with tops and shirts…but there’s something extra special about a blouse. Whether it’s made with a stunning fabric, holds a unique shape, or features unusual detailing, a blouse can transform a skirt, slacks, or even jeans into an eye-catching fashion statement. And a blouse that you’ve sewed yourself? That’s a garment gem you’ll wear proudly for years to come. Whatever your seamstress skills may be, Easy Guide to Sewing Blouses teaches you everything you need to know to produce stylish, on-trend blouses with ready-to-wear quality and a customized fit. Just in time for this season’s newest looks!

Make beautiful blouses that fit, flatter, and flaunt your eye for style. Everyone will ask where you bought your stunning, new blouse, and you can say: “I made it myself!” Packed with tips and techniques most patterns don’t offer, this easy-to-access downloadable guide arms you with blouse-making skills you’ll use every time you sew, including how to:

  • Choose a flattering pattern, find the fabric that suits it best, and put the two together
  • Understand the back of a pattern envelope
  • Customize your pattern for a better fit
  • Work with silky, sheer, and other difficult but luxurious fabrics
  • Know which interfacing to use
  • Add details that give your blouse a ready-to-wear look
  • Get a perfectly pointed collar
  • Set a sleeve, sew a pocket, and create a machine-stitched hem
  • Make an elegant button loop that actually fits the button!
  • And much more

Turn a standard-size pattern into a custom fit. The next time you go to the store, you’ll know exactly how to choose the pattern that’s best for you. Easy Guide to Sewing Blouses delves into the details of why the pattern, size, and fabric you choose are just as important to the final garment as the construction itself. You’ll discover which questions to ask so that you make your selections wisely. You’ll see why wearing a blouse with an overall smooth appearance and the ability to move in comfort are so crucial. With all the possible variations in body shape within each size, it’s important to know how to check and adjust the fit. Easy Guide to Sewing Blouses shows you how.

Divided into four main chapters and replete with photos and illustrations to guide and inspire you, Easy Guide to Sewing Blouses teaches you how to: choose the right pattern, size, and fabric; properly fit, check, and adjust your pattern; and execute expert sewing techniques such as cuffs, seams, and yoking on the most gorgeous blouses ever.
