This has been my favorite sew since I don’t know when. It was super simple, great directions, and I made no adjustments to the pattern. What more could you ask for?
The Phoenix Blouse by hey June Handmade Patterns comes in size 2-22 and has 2 views. View A has bell sleeves, and view B is a tank top. I made the bell sleeve this time but have white daouble gauze earmarked for the tank. I think it would look great under a cardigan or a kimono robe. Which I plan to make soon. I bought the Sylvia Robe pattern from Sew Over It – stay tuned for that post!
I cut the size 18 based on the finished garment measurements as many loose fitting patterns tend to have more ease than I like.
I took my time with this fiddly rayon. All rayon’s are fiddly right? I purposely made myself stop after each major step. That way I didn’t get frustrated. The back turned out gorgeous too don’t you think?
Oh, and those bell sleeves make me feel like a princess.
