This summer blouse pattern is a way of remembering a friend and a gift to the many ladies that have been asking for a blouse that can cover the forearms. There are five big requests I get when the weather starts to get warmer. One of them is a blouse that is fresh, simple, elegant, and able to be worn with shorts, a mini or maxi, jeans or culottes — while at the same time being warm enough that a cool evening breeze won't be uncomfortable. It's a big task for one piece of clothing, but not impossible in my opinion.
This blouse has balloon shaped sleeves, bias tape around the neck allowing you to leave the neckline open or closed with a bow. With a boxy shape for comfort. I recommend using natural fiber fabrics such as silk, cotton batiste, lawn, linen, or rayon.
