Josie Blouse Sewing Pattern by Experimental Space
The Josie Blouse sewing pattern features a trio of pretty pleats that run over the shoulder and down into the sleeve. They then open up to a floaty bishop sleeve finishing with extended cuffs. The pattern & pattern instructions are stored in a gorgeously illustrated envelope.
Sizes in pattern:
Bust: 31″, 33″, 35″, 37″, 39″, 41″, 43″
Fitting tips for larger busts: If your Full Bust (the measurement around the largest part of your chest) is more than 2.5″ larger than your High Bust, then your High Bust should be used to get the best overall fit across your neckline and shoulders. To get your High Bust measurement, run the tape measure around your body, directly under your underarms. You would then do a “Full Bust Adjustment (FBA)” to properly fit your chest.
