Our Favourite Alma Blouses + a discount!

Since Sewaholic Patterns launched in 2010, we’ve released 28 patterns! We thought it would be fun to feature some old favourites on the blog, for a bit of sewing inspiration.  Today we’re throwing it way back to our Alma Blouse!

The Alma is a semi-fitted, feminine blouse with three sleeve options and three neckline options. That’s nine possible variations! That means there is tons of room to customize this blouse to your style or mood, as you’ll see in the versions below.

Here are some much-loved versions from over the years.

I really like the casual styling on this one by Shivani at Pinny Pin Pin (who now has a new blog: Ohh Yellow!)

love Tasha’s simple collarless version on her blog By Gum, by Golly.

Lille Yul

A great version with piping in the collar from the German blog Lille Yul.

I really love seeing how sewists interpret the style of the Alma blouse.. It can go a lot of ways! Sweet, vintage, modern, or even casual and relaxed.

    I love these blouses and own this pattern but haven’t gotten around to making an Alma yet. Inspiring ideas! I love the opportunity collars give us to get creative with mixing up fabrics – colours and prints.

    I bought this pattern way back when, but haven’t made it yet. Thanks for inspiring me to go do it now.

      I am the same, I have purchased it but not made an Alma Blouse yet.

    I have this pattern, after seeing these very inspiring examples I think it is time to do something with mine.

    I love the Alma blouse but don’t think the pattern envelope is very inspiring. I have made several almas, my favourite is a cream double gauze with tiny anchors on it. I never made the belt, just kept it casual to wear with jeans. Love it! Time for a new photo shoot??
