Spring Blouses

We may still be getting the occasional snowfall, but Spring is slowly starting to emerge. And Spring sewing means blouses! The ideal spring blouse is soft, great for layering, and feels great to wear. Look for bright and fresh fabrics to help shake off that winter feeling!

To get you inspired, here are a few blouses we have displayed at Treadle right now. This first one in red shirting is from a Katherine Tilton pattern, Butterick 6325, and features asymmetric details and an interesting collar pleat.

This Japanese cotton double gauze blouse (McCall's 6124) has a smooth, figure-skimming fit due to front and back princess seaming. Perfect for wearing under cardigans and jackets!

Want something quick and simple? McCall's 7360 is a half-buttoning pullover with a boxy, relaxed fit. This lavender Swiss dot fabric makes it springy and sweet!

This one shows a great use of printed cotton lawn. Not too many seams to break up the large print, and a longer cut that flows softly over the body. Made from McCall's 7327, it also has a lovely self-bias neck binding and asymmetric layers at the hem.

Stop by and find your perfect spring blouse today! And if you need more garment inspiration, check the "projects" tag on our blog!
