SOHO Blouse

Today I'm bringing you another top: the SOHO Blouse. The pattern is by See Kate Sew. I love the design of the blouse with the angled yoke and sleeves. I found this minty fabric on clearance at JoAnns and knew it would be perfect for this top. This yoke is fully lined and therefore not see-thru.

This pattern has a few options. You can opt for a straight hem instead of the angled hem I did on this one. You can also opt for regular sleeves instead of ruched ones like I did here.

The only problem I had with this pattern is the sleeves and arm holes. They are a bit snug, making it difficult to take the shirt off. Maybe next time I'll size up, or just cut the arm holes and sleeves a
bit bigger. I'll keep you posted!

I've got the fabric for my next one ready and waiting on my sewing table. I think I'll try the straight hem and go sleeveless!
