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 M∅ME….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 [amazon_textlink asin=’B00FGXVZT6|B00DMHME7K|B003W4YWHI’ text=’Maxilock Stretch ‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’laca0c6-21|lacasacactu0e-21|lacasacactus-21′ marketplace=’FR|DE|UK’ link_id=’e2b51035-f173-11e8-92e6-abe888161781′]in the loopers and [amazon_textlink asin=’B00A45DKWG|B00A45DIV4′ text=’Maxilock Swirl‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’laca0c6-21|lacasacactus-21′ marketplace=’FR|UK’ link_id=’f661613a-f173-11e8-9851-f59ce555ae42′] in the needles.

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