Patterns for Pirates has been having a summer of wovens!  Summer isn’t over and there are two new woven patterns for you, the Brunch Blouse and Bitty Brunch Blouse.  I sewed up a few new tops during testing and they’ve seen a lot of action in my wardrobe since!  

This one is in a mystery fabric I picked up on clearance from Hobby Lobby.  It’s a flowy fabric with a little bit of a sheen to it.  I loved the colors!  A fabric with a nice drape is recommended for this pattern, so it was perfect!

I added a Henley placket and used snaps for the closure. This is the short sleeved version.  You also have a the option of cap sleeves and a tank version.

Cupcake also got a short sleeved version of the Bitty Brunch Blouse in this gorgeous rayon I bought at Mood when I was in NYC this summer.  She was so excited to see her new “big girl” shirt.  She thinks it’s so fancy!  She has the scoop neck version, which has a button loop back to make it easy for kiddos to get it on and off themselves.

There is a seam down the back, which helps give the top some shape.

And of course I had to make one to match.  Because she still likes to match her momma.  Again, I added a Henley placket because I love the look, but this time used buttons.

The top is a quick sew for a woven pattern as there are no sleeves to set in.  Even with the bust darts!  The pattern has 3 hem options.  This is the shirt version, there’s also a curved hem tunic length and a dress length. If the weather weren’t cooling off here I would be whipping up a dress!  I guess it’ll be a spring project……..

The women’s version also has a seam down the back to show off your curves, so you definitely won’t look like you’re wearing a sack!  

I just love this pattern! It’s very different from the normal tee shirts I sew for myself.  I feel so much more put together in this top.  

Pick it up while it’s on sale either as individual patterns or in a bundle.  See what the other testers sewed up on the roundup post.  And check out what kind of fun you can have with it on the hacks post!
