Liberty Theo Blouse

I’m Jen a creative from the North East of England. Main occupation is Hairdressing but Sewing is my close second activity to peruse. I love florals and jumpsuits. Body Measurements 36/30/39 Height 5ft 7inches.  I’m an intermediate Sewist I did find some of the instructions hard to follow.

As soon as I seen this pattern I knew it had to be part of my life. I bought it just before Christmas so lots of our lovely independent material shops were doing discounts so I bought this beautiful cotton Lawn from Material  Girl Laura. It was a perfect match for this pattern.

I had previously made the Liberty Florence Palazzo Suit and I had problems with the sizing on the upper body, so I took this into consideration and cut out the size 16 which allowed an extra 2 inches over the bust. This was a wise move and it fits perfectly.

I found the hidden placket difficult to understand from the instructions so I followed my intuition and it looks right so I moved onto those amazing sleeves.

When I tried the blouse on without the sleeve placket it felt to short, so next time I will lengthen the body of the sleeve. This time I improvised by adding the 2 inches to the cuff. It worked out ok but the circumference around the wrist area felt to wide so I have sewn my buttons on a diagonal to nip in the excess in this area.

I finished of with the Kylie and The Machine label’s ‘Perfectly Imperfect’
