I’m convinced that loose, flowing blouses are made for chilly weather and layering. Paired with favorite blue jeans and worn under a lightweight fall jacket, these wardrobe basics are both comfortable and easy to wear. 

And they’re fun to sew! Often positioned somewhere between an advanced beginner and an intermediate sewing level, blouse sewing patterns give you the chance to practice techniques like bias binding and double-fold hems. Less time-intensive than a dress or jeans, a new top can be whipped up within a single afternoon.

Today I’m rounding up my five favorite blouse sewing patterns for this fall. These patterns are not only some of Indiesew’s most popular patterns; they’re also incredibly versatile. Let’s take a look:



Natalie Top

The Natalie Top by Liola Designs has been a standby favorite of many home sewists for the past year. This blouse is a long-sleeved top with a pleated front detail, optional pocket, and roll-up sleeves with button tab.

The Natalie Top sewing pattern was featured in our first ever Fall Collection and has only grown in popularity since. Check out Erin’s, Teresa’s, and Andrea’s Natalie Top creations below.

Paulina Top

A woven and knit mashup, the Paulina Top is a great sewing pattern by Itch to Stitch. Paulina is a long-sleeved raglan blouse with a knit top, woven underlay and cutouts below each underarm.

I sewed this Paulina Top in a rayon Lycra printed knit with a rayon voile underlay. The cutouts provide some visual interest and the relaxed fit makes this top one of my favorites to wear.

Made by Rae released her Beatrix pattern this summer and I didn’t hesitate to include it in the 2015 Fall Collection. Beatrix is a woven blouse with a buttoned center-back closure, two hem options, and two sleeve options.

In all honesty, this is my most-worn wardrobe item this fall. I wear it at least twice per week with my favorite jeans and flats. This silhouette is comfortable but still looks totally put together. Check out Meg’s floral Beatrix below.

Camas Blouse

Thread Theory’s Camas Blouse has been a popular pattern in the sewing world for a while now. And it’s no wonder, as this knit blouse is trendy and comfortable.

The Camas Blouse is a loose knit blouse with shoulder and back yokes, a curved v-neckline and front placket with button closures. Morgan, the designer of Thread Theory patterns, models her version below.

A bit of a hidden gem among sewists, the Zsalya by Kate and Rose is unique and feminine. Zsalya is a woven top (or dress!) with front and back yokes, and gathered front and back bodices.

We especially love this pattern sewed up with a contrasting yoke for a bit of visual interest. Check out Teri's lovely voile version of Zsalya below.
