{Test} M∅ME blouse (pm-patterns)

pm-patterns is extending its women’s pattern range. After the lovely Suùn blouse( already sewn 3 times at La Casa Cactus, here and there), I was really happy to be one of the testers of the M∅ME blouse.

The M∅ME blouse pattern

With that pattern, you will be able to sew 92 versions of MME….Amazing, right? You will find a bunch of possibilities to suit your mood!

The main features of this blouse are front and back seams with a slightly fitted waist.

And here comes the list of options:

  • Ruffles: without ruffle or with a narrow/large/double ruffle;
  • Collars: collarless or with a pointed/round/Victorian collar;
  • Sleeves: sleeveless or with short/3/4/long sleeves;
  • Cuffs: with or without frills;
  • Slim-fit or loose: with or without sash and loop
  • Back opening: hook-and-eye or zipper.

You know what you will be sewing during these cold dreary winter days!!!

My M∅ME blouse

I had no time to muslin during this test so I cut a size 40 for the upper bust area and a size 42 below. I based this blending of sizes on my latest Suùn blouse’s own blending. I didn’t modify anything else. Since the test, 5cm have been added to the length.

I chose to sew the long sleeve version with the narrow ruffles and the Victorian collar. I put a zipper at the back.

The cotton poplin comes from Les Coupons de Saint-Pierre. You will need some fabric that has a nice drape if you want to sew the ruffles.

I used my serger to sew a rolled hem. That’s a feature I rarely used, but from now on I think I’ll use it more. To get a nice rolled hem, I used Maxilock Stretch in the loopers and Maxilock Swirl in the needles.

The cute sash:

A little bird told me that an free expansion pack will be released in time for the holidays…stay tuned!
