Butterick B6378 is a blouse that fits comfortably, has something extra and is also beautiful to wear under a Chanel-Style jacket or with the jacket draped over your shoulders. The Butterick B6378 is a great blouse, with or without a nice bow and quite easy to make.
The Butterick B6378 is not that different from the Butterick 6710. The only difference is a yoke at the shoulders and the opening at the front. The Butterick B6378 sewing pattern is a pattern for a blouse in four variations. The variation is in the length of the sleeves and in the bow.
The bow in Model B is long and wide.
With Model A, the bow is not around the neck but is located at the tunic opening.
In Model D it is just a string and Model C has quite different collar.
Due to these variations, the blouses look completely different.
Which fabric is this sewing pattern suitable for? The recommended fabrics are: Georgette, Challis, Crepe, Rayon. We made the blouse in dark blue viscose/cotton and light pink silk. The dark blue blouse (see below) we have added 'Chanel trims' to the tunic-like opening of the neck and at the bottom of the sleeves. This gives the blouse a real chic look.
We made the light pink silk blouse according to Model B. However, we left the sleeves loose in the seam instead of elastic sleeve openings. This gives the blouse a different look. The 'Silky satin' was bought at Driessenstoffen.nl
Sewing level: 'easy'
The sewing pattern is suitable for the novice seamstress. Indeed, we think that the blouse pattern is 'easy to sew'. The sewing pattern has no pitfalls or difficulties.
But the bow from Model B. is not thàt easy to sew. Follow the instructions carefully so that you sew it by hand on the inside and not on the right side of the fabric.
Butterick B6378 is just like the Butterick 6710 is an easy pattern to make a classic blouse.
This blouse looks great under a 'Chanel-style' jacket because the bow makes the - often collarless - Chanel-Style jacket even more beautiful and classic.
The blouse can also be worn casually with jeans or pleated trousers, for example.
The instructions are very comprehensive and clear.
You can also vary enough with the pattern. For us, this tunic-like blouse falls under "The classics" because the design is timeless and a real must-have for someone who likes basic ánd classic style.
