Introducing Colette’s Sencha Blouse! Yep, another Colette pattern. What can we say, they’re awesome patterns! This beautiful summer blouse is feminine and slightly tailored, but not too fitted. The Sencha features pleated tucks at the front and back, a button or snap back closure, and key hole or tucked neckline. The version we’re sharing with you is version three, which is the button back closure and key hole neckline option.
This pattern is great for beginner sewers who want to advance to the next level of sewing, and expand their skill with hand sewn finishes and small details. The silhouette on Sencha is very forgiving, which is great for those who are in between sizes, or don’t want to fuss with a muslin fitting before they sew.
We used a lightweight shot cotton in color “Coal”. I love shot cottons because they are typically two different colors woven together to give you the look of a solid. Coal is a great color because it’s black at first glance, but in certain light could pass as deep navy blue! It’s really pretty. Sencha would look amazing in any of the voile cottons here too! What fabric would you pick?
Thanks for taking a look!
