With voluminous sleeves and a dramatically scooped neck, the Adrienne Blouse is a wardrobe showstopper. As impressive as it looks, it's remarkably simple to sew. Pattern designer Chelsea Gurnoe of Friday Pattern Company walks you through every step of sewing the blouse, giving helpful tips on working with elastic, using zig zag and stretch stitches on knit fabric, and hemming. Since it uses only three pattern pieces, it comes together quickly, and the pattern is so simple it practically insists on repeat sewing. Pattern PDF included, available in sizes XS (32-33" bust) to 4X (53-54" bust).
