An easy and very classic blouse! Yes a great idea when you have to look representative but the w heather is sweaty and hot. Butterick B6378 offers a great blouse in four varieties.
Read about the blouse in this blog. Also: a photo-tutorial to make it extra comfortable to sew this blouse for beginners.
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.
