Nina Lee Bloomsbury Blouse Pattern

The Nina Lee Bloomsbury Blouse Pattern creates a high-necked, Edwardian-inspired blouse. You can choose to make the narrow ruffles and appear dainty and demure.  Alternatively, you can opt for an unequivocally flamboyant and fun look with the bold wide ruffles. Ruffles have been dominating the catwalk in recent seasons but Bloomsbury translates a trend that can sometimes be a little OTT into a garment easy to wear and style.

The Bloomsbury Blouse Pattern suits lightweight cottons best.  However, if you’re feeling adventurous, why not make it in a drapey fabric or even velvet and lace for a touch of high Victoriana.

The blouse features a high collar, a yoked bodice with two ruffle options, button-back fastening, bracelet-length sleeves and the option to add ruffles to the collar and/or sleeves. Whilst care is required when sewing the yoke and collar curves, this pattern should be suitable for an ambitious beginner who isn’t afraid of taking their sewing to the next stage.

Skill level: intermediate

SUITABLE FABRICS

Hello, I’m Nina!

Nina Lee is my independent pattern label celebrating the mighty power of making! I’m based in London and create sewing patterns inspired by the incredible heritage and diversity of this brilliant place. Our patterns are named after places in the city, from fashion-forward Carnaby Street to the historic treasure trove that is Bloomsbury, and on our printed pattern envelopes you’ll find original illustrations capturing the atmosphere of each neighbourhood.

We aim to be part of the movement away from disposable, ‘fast’ fashion, towards a more sustainable and rewarding form of dressing – but one that never forgets to be fun. Our designs are intended to fit into your me-made wardrobe year-round, and to work as canvases for your own creativity.

All of our patterns come in UK sizes 6–20, with in-depth, fully illustrated instructions to guide you through. They are drafted for an average height of 5’5″ and a B cup.
