La Sylphide blouse – with birds !

Papercut La Sylphide Blouse.

I really like this pattern, it’s so lovely and girly with the necktie and peplum!

I was originally making this for the monosewn month at TMS in July last year. It got cut out and then put on the “I’m not sure” pile. Mainly because I had cut out the necktie and sleeves with black and white polka dots cause I ran out of the black and white birds fabric.

I started making it up again in March this year and rage quit cause it was AWFUL with the black and white polka dots… way too much going on.

And thats when I changed it to plain black poplin. Also changed the sleeves to cap sleeves because I reckon it’s WAY too much with the gathered sleeves!! I used the sleeve pattern from the Deer and Doe Reglisse. I love cap sleeves!

Although I look really unimpressed about something in the below photo.. fascinating..

So I made the La Sylphide in red rayon last year for Indie Pattern Month and it turned out REALLY well.. even with the gathered sleeves 😛 But of course it’s uber short, so I’m gonna cut this up into a blouse version because I have only worn it once and that fabric DESERVES to be worn.

Perfect for work too 😀

Right, anyways, I don’t really have much to say about it. Cuts out as a giant circle with 2 holes for the arms.

Very easy to make.

I found the sleeves are quite short though.. I’m one of those people that I like to pull my sleeves up over my hands and snuggles in.. Every time I do it with these, it pulls the shoulder seams down my arms and then it feels weird to wear so I kept shifting it around a lot when I’m wearing it. Will DEFINITELY be lengthening the arms if I make another one.

And I probs will.. cause so snuuuuuugly!
