Brighten up your wardrobe with a pretty new blouse! The Alma Blouse is a feminine, semi-fitted blouse with neckline and sleeve variations. Darts create a fitted silhouette without being too tight, with an optional tie belt to cinch the waistline. The Alma Blouse closes at the side with an invisible zipper.
All of the sleeve and neckline options work together to create nine different blouses from a single pattern! Your choice of cute cap sleeves, elbow-length sleeves or long sleeves with cuffs. For the neckline, choose from a simple rounded neckline, a contrast Peter Pan collar, or a notched neckline to frame your face.
Perfect for work, equally pretty for a night out!
Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller bust and waist, larger hips.

I made view A but made long sleeves rather than the short cap sleeves. I found that I actually did not need the side zipper when I made the size that matched my measurements. Next time I might try going down in size to make a more fitted blouse, and use the zipper. I liked that the instructions were easy to follow and the blouse is quick to sew. Made 2 so far.

Loved the final result of this blouse - made view A in a purple/red polka dots cotton - fit was perfect with no alterations and sewing construction was easy to follow - all the pattern pieces fit together well - will be making other versions of this for sure!
