With an elegant stand collar and three-quarter length sleeves, the Blouse is loosely fitted, providing ease and comfort for your day-to-day activities while still being chic. The Blouse is made without darts and includes a button placket, collar and elasticated cuffs – ideal for those looking to sew their first blouse.

- Red Clay Isla Meadow Rayon Lawn - There's a lovely prairie feel to this rayon lawn, one of my favorite substrates. The directional print features white, peach, gold, and orange flowers alongside foliage and hashmarks for a print that is all together unique and unexpected. The deep red background ties the whole thing together and gives the fabric a wintery feel, like cranberry sauce or christmas holly. The fabric itself has a smooth, tightly woven hand and soft drape that will match this blouse perfectly. A great addition to your fall wardrobe!
