Friday Pattern Company – Adrienne Blouse

Without any real plan for fall/winter sewing I’m sewing whatever inspires me. I’ve wanted to make the Adrienne Blouse by Friday Pattern Company for a couple of years but it never seemed to make it to the top of my to-sew pile. I’m still in need of some solid colored tops so it was time to get this one done.

The fabric is a crepe knit from Minerva that I purchased during the summer. The fabric has a nice weight and great recovery. This top is fitted so I didn’t want a knit that was too thin.

Speaking of fitted top, my measurements put me at a size small. I had read that there was quite a bit of negative ease with this pattern but I stuck with my plan to sew the small size. My small version wound up in the donation pile. I sized up to a medium and am much happier with the fit.

The weather is starting to get cooler here so with this top I declare that fall sewing has officially begun.

  1. Such a fabulous and distinctive top! The fitted bodice fits you perfectly (too bad about the first version though), and those billowy sleeves are wonderful! Lovely color too. You hit a home run with this one Lucy.

  2. Wow! Your top is gorgeous! I just discovered this pattern and intend to sew it up very soon. I really appreciate your comments on the sizing! And I relate to sewing what inspires me. I keep meaning to have a plan… I love connecting with someone who is sewing on a whim every now and then, too! Your blog is a joy to read. xo

    • Thank you Nina. I had to try the top on again to answer your question. I had not noticed and issues with my bra straps and wanted to confirm. I never even thought of them. When I tried the top on again I noticed that the straps stay nicely tucked in. I think the elastic at the top of the sleeves is secure enough to keep the straps hidden.
