Marie’s Alma Blouse

Marie from the blog A Sewing Odyssey has a thing for collars, so it worked out well to have her pattern-test the Alma Blouse!

Yes, that’s a swiss dot on the collar! What a great idea. I always think of solid contrasts in flat, plain fabric but there’s no reason why you can’t pick something with a little texture! I love garments that get more interesting as you approach to the person wearing them and you can see all the little details.

Read more on her blog, A Sewing Odyssey, here to check out photos of her modeling the blouse! It’s really cute.

    That’s a great version and such a great idea to use swiss dot.

    Gorgeous. Love both the Swiss dot and the main print. Can’t wait to make an Alma.

    That one is so cute – I love the fabric choices! I just cut out the fabric for my Alma last night and can’t wait to get to work on it over the weekend!

    I think this is my favourite version so far. Fabulous fabric choices and one class act. This is such a flexible pattern!

    From what I’ve seen embellished collars appear to be really in right now so she’s spot on with a simple version of that :)

    Oh, it’s beautiful. Marie chose a fabulous fabric and I love the collar.
