By P&M Patterns, Yzé Blouse & Dress is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: In short Yzé is a nice little blouse or a cute feminine dress that can be elegant or rather casual, depending on the choice of fabric.
Featuring a nice flared shape with a round front neck that emphasizes the neckline delicately. Choose from various back necklines, ranging from the most modest to the most glamorous, all of these with the lovely sleeves that are the highlights of this pattern: pleated short sleeves or longer darted sleeves.
And to top it all, it’s a pattern that is extremely quick and easy to sew, without any technical difficulties, even if you choose to sew the fully-lined version. Except for fabric, you won’t need anything else!
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including sizes 34 to 52. Sizing guide can be found here.
