Pauline Alice - Coeli Blouse
About the Coeli Blouse
What a stunning blouse! The Coeli is one of the new releases from Pauline Alice. It is a loose-fitting smock style top, but the design details make this stand out from the crowd. It has what is described as shoulder yokes, and there are wide horizontal knife pleats on the sleeves and bodice. It has a high collar and the billowing sleeves gather into cuffs. The back closes with ties (which you could have lots of fun with), and the cuffs close with small buttons. This blouse could be worn with pants in winter, while pairing Coeli with shorts or a slim skirt is summer would be breezy but still very put together.
For your Coeli blouse, consider lightweight fabrics such as cotton batiste/lawn/voile, silk, poplin and viscose. Cloth Edit also thinks that a light weight washed linen would also be beautiful.
This pattern is for sizes 34-52 (Bust: 80cm - 120cm; Waist: 62cm - 102cm; Hips: 86cm - 126cm).
Level of Difficulty
Pauline Alice rates the Coeli Blouse as "two scissors", indicating it is for an intermediate sewer.
