October being a pink month I thought it was the perfect colour to use for my Esther blouse and I’m so happy with it.
Esther is the newest member of the Wardrobe by me family. It’s a lovely peasant style blouse for woven fabrics. The blouse has pleats or gathers at the neckline and at the sleeve cuffs. There are two length options both for the body and the sleeves. Mine is in the longer lengths and with the pleats.
I love the boatneck look of the neckline and the blouse goes smoothly over the head without undoing the button. I did straight up size 6 as the pattern has enough ease to go nicely over my hips, which are size 10. I often have to add length to my sleeves but in this case the length was perfect as is.
I bought my fabric from the lovely Imagine Gnats store. Its a silky noil viscose/linen blend with amazing feel and drape. This is the magenta colour but there are many other colours available. It was perfect for the Esther blouse.
Isn’t this cuff lovely! I love the attention to detail in Wardrobe by me patterns!
The Esther blouse is definitely going on my list of favourite patterns!
