Mika’s Alma Blouse

More Alma Blouse ideas for your Monday morning! There are so many great versions of this blouse out there. For View B, you don’t have to make the collar in contrast fabric. Mika from Savory Stitches used the same fabric for the collar and the body, and it looks fantastic!

Click here to check out her post and more photos. What’s also interesting about her version is that she’s eliminated the zipper and can pull it on without any closures. The drape of the soft rayon fabric keeps the blouse from looking too boxy or tent-like. This may or may not work for you, depending on your body shape and the size you choose, but it’s something to consider for your version!

    I really, really love Mika’s version and would like to make another one myself with the collar the same too. After Mika’s original post I actually tried my Alma on without undoing the zip and I was able to get it on and off, so I may just go ahead and eliminate the zip next time as well!

    I really like Mika’s Alma blouse too. I think using the same fabric for shell and collar make it more subtle…I think this is a great pattern and I look forward to making many versions of it!

    This is a beautiful version. I’m hoping I can eliminate the zip when I get around to making one…
    So many lovely versions!

    This is a very beautiful version of the Alma blouse. I love the soft grey and delicate polka dots, it compliments very well the romantic design of the blouse. Well done Mika!

    It’s one of the prettiest Almas I’ve seen so far!

    I like Mika’s version better than all the others. Very dressy. Could be used for work or dressed up for evening. I’m thinking that I might be able to make this blouse for myself.
