Jenni has been making up a range of garments using different paper patterns, putting together a range of her favourites. She has been testing lots of different independent paper patterns, sourcing the most suitable fabrics and using tools that make the make easier. She also offers lots of sewing tips for every pattern, included in a blog pattern review.
The patterns sold have to be of a good quality, easy to follow, include different sewing skills that will add to your knowledge, confidence, along side developing your sewing skills. Here you have the option to buy the pattern, fabric and or fastenings separately, or you can buy a kit, each kit includes everything you need to make the product linked to the paper pattern. these kits are tried and tested and aim to reduce your searching time.
You will need lots of quality time and patience to make this blouse. There are several parts that require focus, time and skill. You will need a machine that has a button-hole setting. The button placement and gathered shoulders are unique features that will be a topic of conversation.
Each part is easier with experience, so I recommend practicing the collar and cuffs, with some cotton calico first. I have included calico in the pack.
I have given 2 fabric options:
- the linen is sturdy and easier to sew. I would recommend you start with this. This is the casual, daywear look.
- the polyester is slightly harder to sew, as it is light weight. It gives a more evening wear look.
