In six womens' sizes, XS - XXL.
One of my favorite things about Josephine is the pleats on the front; I think it creates a really sophisticated look even though they are really very easy to sew! The three views included in the pattern are:
View A - a tunic version with a wider sleeve, narrow belt, and elasticized cuff (shown in green/gray fabric).
View B – a blouse version with a cuffed bracelet-length sleeve and an elastic casing in the back for a very flattering fit (shown in yellow fabric).
View C – a sleeveless blouse with a center front slit and side vents (shown in pale pink fabric).
Of course the options that come with each view are interchangeable so you can customize your Josephine to make many different variations!
This pattern is a great project for the confident beginner sewist who is ready to add some skills and variety to their garment-sewing repertoire. The instructions and diagrams are thorough, easy to follow, and full of hints and tips. We’ve also included a special “Seam Finishes Appendix” in this pattern with instructions for my favorite seam finishes as well!
This pattern is delivered via instant download as a PDF eBook which features full-color photographs and diagrams, step by step instructions, and plenty of tips and hints. All pattern pieces are full-sized and include seam allowances.
This pattern comes in a range of six women’s sizes, from XS through XXL, with two bodice pieces included for each size: one has an A/B cup bust dart, and the other has a C/D cup bust dart. I’m hoping this will allow for a great fit for many shapes and sizes!! Refer to the charts below to find your size, and choose to make the A/B or C/D depending on your bra cup size.
