The holidays are approaching and you are still looking for the right outfit? Then look no further. With our sewing pattern you can sew your own festive blouse that will make you the eye-catcher at every celebration. Light or dark, patterned or plain – the choice is yours. Whether it's Christmas or New Year's Eve, with your new it-piece you'll be ready for all events.
Important: Our sizes cannot be compared with ready-to-wear sizes. It is very important that you take your measurements before you start.
How to take measurements:
It is best to take your measurements directly on your underwear. Wear a bra that fits. The waist band should not be too tight around the waist (it must still be possible to adjust it).
