The Joina blouse was created in collaboration with Johanna alias @joina215. Johanna has been a member of our design sewing group for a long time and always inspires us with her great sewing examples. Some time ago she went public with a remarkable post. In this she reports on her serious, little-researched illness, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome, or ME/CFS for short. We spontaneously decided to start this blouse project together with her.
Johanna has created a romantic blouse with ruffle details on the collar and cuffs. The torso is cut loosely and has a straight hemline. The wide, puffed sleeves are 3/4 length, the narrow cuffs and the front edge are closed with loops and buttons. This takes some practice, but it goes perfectly with the style of the blouse .
In case the loop closure is a bit too much of a challenge or effort for you, we have now added a variant with a closed center front to our sewing instructions.
Length at center back = 62-68 cm.
Available as an e-book and as a single and multi-size pattern from 34-50
