Blouse violette – Dessine-moi un patron

I could say ‘Long time no see’ about articles where I show you my sewing projects! No, actually not that much, because if you take a good look, I had managed to sew and present to you the Safran pants (Deer & Doe) in August. But still, I am delighted to be back with my projects!

As I told you recently, I just got my sweet sewing machines back about ten days ago, and I could not wait to use them! I had to buy a transformer as I bought them in Canada and they work on 110V compare to 220V in Europe. Once everything was installed, I was ready to be back in the sewing game! But where to start ?! After 3 months I had so many ideas, but perhaps too much?

After thinking, I decided to sew the Violette blouse, from Dessine-moi un patron, that I had received in the summer of 2015 when I was pregnant. So, as you can see, it was on my to-do list for a while! However, as I don’t like the ¾ sleeves (especially in autumn-winter), I wanted to add a little more detail, that I took from the Stockholm blouse pattern (Atelier Scämmit), and added to the existing Violet sleeves. I really like the result.

I loved sewing this pattern whose instructions are well explained. The finishes are beautiful, and this top has lots of nice details. However, I have two small comments: I think, for my part, that the neckline is a little high. This will require that I low it down a bit next time. The second comment I have is regarding the armholes that I find a bit tight. One of you has mentioned it to me on IG (but I already cut my fabric …) but it is true that the armholes would need some adjustments for more comfort. I have not added piping because I prefer simple projects, and I have again used covered buttons. I love them so much!

Regarding the fabric, I could not wait to use this coupon I bought in a shop in Montreal. Sadly, I took only a meter, and I had forgotten that it had a width of 110 … I tried to make a blouse Suzon in it in the Spring, but I definitely didn’t have enough. But I had just enough for this project! I have not been able to add 3 cm seam allowance on the front and back as recommended (but less), so I decided to make a version slightly shorter in front than the back, and I love the result. Worn with a high waist jeans, this is not a problem, it even looks good in my opinion!

It was really warm tonight to take pictures at sunset, but I’ll have to look for a cardigan in my closet if I want to wear it in the winter.

Have a good weekend!

    Très joli, effectivement! Concernant les machines à coudre sur 110V, ça vaut la peine de se renseigner si la marque ne vend pas aussi dans des pays à 220V: dans ce cas, il y a des fois une connexion/interrupteur qu’on peut changer pour passer d’une tension à l’autre.

    Très jolie version! Les emmanchures serrées cela me rappelle les patrons japonais qui ont souvent ce problème. Cette broderie anglaise bleue est lumineuse.

    Bravo pour cette blouse ! Le hasard fait que j’ ai cousu deux blouses Violette la semaine dernière une pour moi et une pour ma maman …. Et j’ai fait les même conclusions que toi : encolure trop haute, emmanchures et manches trop petites…. Mais bon cela reste un très joli patron !!!! Ton choix du tissus est très réussi !!

    Hi Anna,
    Your blouse looks gorgeous! May I ask what brand of converter you bought for your sewing machine? I am in a similar situation, I plan to bring my sewing machine from US (110V) to Russia (220V). Thank you!
