Hot! MTL: Lemon Liftoff Blouse

Today, MTL ventures into separates! I had been eyeing this darling blouse from Anthropologie when Liz wrote in her own request:

I was recently on the Anthropologie site and fell in love with two items that I'd love to make. The first is a sweet yellow blouse, that has lots of vintage details (bow, peplum, print). I know you've only posted dresses on MTL, but if you decide to span out to separates I'd love to have your take on a pattern/fabric for these little beauties. Thanks and have a lovely weekend.

The original version of this blouse is perfect with its precious silk owl print. The version I've created for MTL captures the spirit in a more practical (cotton) fabric. The Butterick pattern has two sleeve views, so I suggest a combination of "A" and "B." While the MTL version won't be as dainty and luxe as the Anthropologie one, it won't cost $118 to create.

  1. Already got that pattern on my wishlist! Really looking at the “bones” of the pattern is where it’s at. :P I’m loving this MTL feature, it’s really awesome!

  2. this is awesome! I just got my Anthro catalog in the mail and was looking at this very blouse. I also LOOOVE this feature!

  3. YAY! I’m going to have to hunt down this pattern for sure!
    Thanks so much Sew Weekly! :)

  4. Oh my gosh–I’m so glad you found a similar fabric! I fell head over heels for this blouse (even though yellow does rather awful things to my complexion ;) when I was browsing through the site recently. Now I can have something similar! ;)
