Jalie 3881 – Sleeveless Eyelet Blouse

IMG_9051

The weather is still warm here on the Central Coast of California and I still have summer sewing on my mind. I bought this eyelet last summer and was determined to get it sewn up this year.

In my opinion, the width of the collar is perfect. I often find the collars of shirt patterns to be too wide. The yoke and back pleat are interesting features. My only issue with this pattern was that it was a little shapeless for my taste. I used another shirt pattern to help me shape the sides. I removed approximately 1.5 inches at the waist, tapering to nothing at the armscye and hem, which I left as drafted.

The fabric was 60″ wide and I had 1.5 yards. I didn’t have enough to cut the armscye binding in the eyelet so I used the same print I had planned on using for the collar stand. I like the way it turned out.

This is the type of top that I can wear all summer long.

  1. Such a pretty summer top in a classic style. I love the contrast fabric you used, it really elevates this project. I think you were right to add some shaping to the sides. The fit is great, nicely shaped but not too tight- just right for this style.
