HP 1226 DL Plain & Simple Slouchy T-Shirt Blouse
(You save )
This T-shirt/blouse hybrid is the perfect mix
of comfy T and dressy blouse.
Make this wardrobe essential in fluid wovens like
crepe, crepe de chine, (crinkle) gauze, rayon challis,
georgette, panne velvet, or charmeuse; try it in a
soft lace over a solid cami; or choose drape-y knits like
linen, rayon, bamboo or silk jersey, or ITY.
Unlined, relaxed fit, pull-on blouse has front & back
princess seams for a trim bustline, plus optional breast
pockets. Choose a rib-trimmed sleeveless or long
sleeved version, or make your T-Shirt blouse with a
deep hem on above elbow sleeves. Jewel neckline is
finished with ribbing or a shaped neckband. Deep
stitched hem is longer at the back with side seam slits.
This is the perfect piece for all those special blouse-weight
fabrics in your stash; wear this when you want to look pulled
together but need to be comfy, and style it as you would a
T-shirt...over jeans, tucked into pants or a skirt, under a
cardigan or jacket. This gorgeous piece is a year-round
style with a change of fabric & sleeve length.
Long OR short sleeved OR sleeveless versions
all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
will need around 2 yards or 185cm fabric;
*PLEASE NOTE* you will have almost no little waste
on the long sleeved version; a little on the short
sleeved version and more on the sleeveless version.
Fortunately this gives you some nice big leftovers to
use as trims, patchwork, color blocking...
Allow 1/4 yard or 23cm rib knit if you are making the
rib knit neckband, armhole band or cuffs.
All fabric allowances are for 60" or 150cm wide fabrics.
Plain & Simple Slouchy T-Shirt Blouse
This pattern appeals to me as I can make a T-shirt or a blouse. With its long sleeves, I have a lovely, loose-fitting blouse. But, I can also make a comfy T-shirt with short sleeves or even sleeveless. This pattern gives me 12 months of style. I easily lengthen it to wear over my pants. And....princess seams, what's not to love?
Fits beautifully, directions are easy to follow and understand. Will make again
