It makes sense as it is the perfect top to face the summer heat, with its scooped-out armholes and its relaxed cut that has just enough ease to not stick to the body.
What I like the most about this pattern is its versatility. In a pastel-colored cotton voile, with the peter pan collar or a lace yoke, it looks youthful and romantic. Let me show you a few of my favorites:
Bibouchka – Peneloping – Ira Jaymes
But made from a lawn with an abstract black-and-white print, its style is much more geometric, perfect with the triangular cut-outs at the neckline! I especially like these two versions:
What Katie Sews – Stokes Croft Stitching
As for me, I recently sewed one from a lovely Cotton+Steel flamingo fabric, without the collar but with gold piping (posted here on Instagram), I love it!

Do you know of any tutorials that walk you through how to sew the lining and top shoulders together? I made a muslin, it needed a few alterations and I’ve not gone back to make it again because of not being sure I did it correctly or even if there might be an easier way. Thoughts or suggestions?

Hi Terry! We haven’t gotten a chance to photograph a tutorial on this point yet, but you can check out this one on the Burdastyle website that explains the same method 🙂

This is a very pretty blouse and really feminine. Have you ladies not noticed that the more modest we are, the more men like it?
