Friday Fashion Inspiration -8


How about blouses for this week?  I for one love them, on their own or layered, a versatile garment.


The beautiful wrap blouse, perfect for daytime or evening or holidays
here is one RTW inspiraton from Nordstrom

And at least three patterns for your look

The Dotty Blouse from Style Arc

Just a nice basic blouse but the fabric really makes the statement, and this inspiration from Anthropologie is the ticket.

It look like it is collarless, so that is the patterns I am picking

The Victoria Blouse from Style Arc, which has a great back yoke for even more print mixing

or one from Vogue 1412

A draped front blouse for your fall/winter sewing?  This is a pretty one from Mod Cloth

You probably have a blouse pattern that would work but if not here is a suggestion

And the last one, this beautiful blouse with such a nice neckline detail, which is from ModCloth

Simplicity  1280 has a great one for this look

That is it for this week.  Favorites?  I can't pick just one, I love them all and my mind is thinking of the possibilities.  Now to find more time to sew, which will be harder with the upcoming holidays.

Next week, there will be no Friday Fashion Inspiration, I will be spending time with family for Thanksgiving.

  3. I love the detail on the Style Arc pattern. And Simplicity 1280 offers a lot of versatility for the Mod Cloth look. Thanks for the Inspiration.

  4. I love this Friday inspiration series! I'll need to pick up the vogue suggestion. I'm searching for the perfect popover/tunic blouse that is pretty and modern and not a complete tent. This is getting close! Another option for the draped blouse or the neckline detail of the last inspiration is New Look 6303. It's basically the same pattern as the Simplicity just with difference versions including one with a longer back that works well with skinny jeans. I'm in the middle of making my second iteration. It's super easy!
