Capsule Wardrobe 2a: The Patina Blouse

The Patina Blouse is a collared, v-neck, button-up top. The sleeves are full and the pattern includes options for a short sleeve or long sleeve with cuff and continuous bound placket. It comes with two neckline depth options and you can access free additional neckline options on this blog post. The Patina is designed for light to mid-weight woven fabrics. The Patina is an essential button-up blouse with a twist and is sure to be the type of top you reach for again and again.

The Patina Blouse is loose without being oversized. The sleeves are full so there is a lot of room through the biceps and shoulder area. If your chest, waist, and hips fall into different sizes, we will help you blend between multiple sizes to get your perfect fit! 

The Patina Blouse works best with woven fabrics in light or medium weights. As the pattern includes a short or longer sleeve the results of your make can vary depending on the sleeve choice and fabric choice. The shorter sleeve version in a lightweight fabric would be great for warmer weather and the longer sleeve layered with a sweater vest or cardigan would be great in winter. 

Other fabrics that would work well and look great include linens, lawn, cotton blends, double gauze, Twill, brushed cottons, lightweight cotton denims, ginghams and so many more!
