The Nina Blouse Bog Tour is live and today it’s my turn!
If you follow me on IG you have already seen my tester version – a long sleeve blouse (in a fabric picked by my girl). Still, I was anxious to sew a “summer” version and although the weather failed to cooperate (we have been under a cold front with lots of rain), this tour was the perfect excuse to sew one, right 😉
The blouse has two cap sleeve options (including a scalloped cap sleeve), long sleeves and two collar options (also with a scalloped collar that is just too sweet). It also includes an optional front bow/tie for sizes 4 and up.
I really wanted to sew a cap sleeve option and my girl picked the sleeve and collar options. As expected, she went for the basic cap sleeve and collar (confession: I would have prefered the scalloped cap sleeve and collar, but that’s what you get when you give options, lol).
This blouse sews in no time (really) and I can’t get over how cute it looks on her – the fit is just perfect and allows her to move (and dance) without restraining her movements. She absolutely adores it – and that’s quite an acoomplishment these days!!
I made her a size 10 with no mods using a broderie anglaise and a small piece of Liberty for the collar – I love the way it looks!
And because we all love a pattern sale – there’s a 20% off the total purchase with NINAPATTERNTOUR (the offer is valid through 03/19, 11:59 pm Central (Chicago) time zone).
