A versatile pleated blouse or tunic for woven fabrics! Josephine is a great project for the confident beginner sewist who is ready to add some skills and variety to her garment-sewing repertoire.
inspiration & resources: visit the Josephine Page on my blog!
recommended fabrics: woven cotton and linen blend fabrics such as voile, rayon challis, shot cotton, shirting, double gauze, lawn, and broadcloth. I only recommend making the fuller sleeve for View A if you are using a fabric with a great deal of drape (such as rayon challis); if you are using fabric with less drape, use the sleeve pattern piece as-is instead of adding extra width. (see yardage chart)
sizes: six women’s sizes: xs-xxl with two front bodices to fit either A/B or C/D cup sizes (see size chart & finished measurements)
file includes: full-sized pattern pieces including seam allowances in both print-at-home and copy shop formats (A0 and US).
