One Pattern, Many Looks: Blouses

Breeze through pattern modifications for bodices, collars, closures and sleeves with fashion designer Sarah Holden. Turn a basic blouse pattern into a template you can use to create a wardrobe of custom-fit garments. Modify the length and shape of hems, reimagine garment silhouettes, create any style of yoke and manipulate bust darts to unlock new looks. Bring your garments together in flawless fashion as you learn to add facings, keyhole closures and hidden button plackets. Add boutique appeal to your patterns with cowl, tie-neck and flat-falling collars. Adjust sleeve length and fullness, and create sophisticated ribbon-ruched sleeves and elegant bell sleeves. Build the blouses and tops you've been looking for starting with a single commercial pattern.
