Make a statement with this extra-extravagant ruffled collar and vava-voluminous sleeves!
The Bakerloo Blouse and Dress from Nina Lee has lovely blouse and dress options, and is suitable for a wide range of fabrics and customisation. It fastens with a button and keyhole at the centre-back. The pattern skims the bust into a loose fit around the waist for ease and comfort – after all, that’s the name of the game right now, isn’t it? The balloon sleeves feature two different length options and gather into elasticated cuffs with ruffled edges echoing the collar.
The dress variation has a full gathered (and pocketed) skirt. Why not grunge it up with tights and biker boots for the winter then drift around in breezy cotton lawn and sandals for the summer. Wear the blouse on its own or under pinafores, dungarees and V-neck sweaters for statement layering. This pattern is ideal for light to medium-weight wovens like lawn, poplin, chambray, silk dupion, crepe, and fine needlecord. The sewing pattern comes in sizes 6-20 (UK).
