The Summer Blouse

Meet our pretty new summer blouse, a 2024 update for the 'Sweet Spring Top', this version has slightly longer fuller sleeves to acknowledge the current romantic puffed-sleeve trend, which FASHIONSKOOL loves. The gently elasticated neckline and sleeves allow it to be cool on the hottest of days whilst allowing a bit of room for growth. Plus, it's a versatile addition to your wardrobe as it works well with all skirt shapes, loose trousers, shorts or jeans.  


This beginners+ level project is ideal for relatively new stitchers wishing to further develop their sewing skills. You must already be able to use a sewing machine confidently and ideally have completed a beginners clothing project (i.e., easy-level  pyjamas) or similar. You'll learn how to prepare, pin and cut your fabric (using an exclusive FASHIONSKOOL paper pattern in your chosen size) and how to finish seams neatly, turn hems and insert elastic. The giant bow is entirely optional (see below).
