Susie Blouse PDF Sewing Pattern


Lisa designed the Susie Blouse (previously known as the Ultimate Blouse!) after finding a gap in her wardrobe for a simple yet versatile everyday top.

A true staple, the Susie Blouse has three variations – casual short sleeves, a chic 3/4 length sleeve or a smart long sleeve with a cuff – there’s a Susie for every occasion!

The flattering, loose fitting bodice is shaped with bust darts and features a v-neck with flat collar. With no tricky fastenings it is ideal for beginner dressmakers who want to make their first top, as well as more advanced sewers who fancy trialling some trickier fabrics.

See what other people have been making in the Susie Blouse Gallery.
