Laela Jeyne Cosette Blouse

I tend to favor the comfort of knit tops rather than woven, and I am generally more comfortable in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt than a nice blouse and trousers.  The Cosette Blouse is the perfect compromise between the two – it is a woven top with the comfort of a knit.  The small details included in this pattern take it up a notch, and I love those details.


The Cosette Blouse is a brand new pattern that comes with two completely different style options. The first one has a Peter Pan collar and short, petal sleeves which are adorable.  The second option includes a scarf adn gathered 3/4 sleeves.  I chose to create the first version with the Peter Pan collar and petal sleeves, and I love the result.

Wait!  There’s a collar missing you say?  Yeah, well, I had the best of intentions.  😀  I was not feeling particularly well when I made the blouse, and I had sewn, understitched, AND topstitched the neck facing before I realized I had left the collar off.  It became a design element and a pattern hack then and there!  The blouse looks great without the collar, and I can’t wait to make one with the collar now.
