Simplicity 1364 My Favorite Blouse

By on July 18, 2016

I have a new favorite blouse pattern and it is Simplicity 1364.

This 1960’s reproduction pattern really is a JIFFY pattern.

My first version made in pink floral

My first version was a pink floral cotton, which I made as a test, since the pattern was new to me.

I loved it so much I immediately made a second one. This time out of a white floral and used French seams throughout.

I also made matching hair scarves for both blouses.

This blouse looks great with jeans or a skirt and is so light and comfy to wear in the summer heat.

Making this blouse was easy, it consists of only two main pattern pieces and sews up in no time.  I made even easier to put together by making a few modifications.

Fruity Peasant Blouse

You may remember my black Swiss dot peasant blouse I made a while back. In keeping with my Summer peasant blouse series, the second blouse using Butterick 9768 has been made!

 This time I used a raw silk with the most adorable fruit and floral print ever!

 I am thrilled with how it came out. The weight of this fabric is perfect for this pattern. It’s also such a quick project!
