Sewing School: The Peppermint Albion Blouse Is Here!

Pull out your poetry and get capital-R romantic with our latest free pattern, the Peppermint Albion Blouse.

Made in collaboration with Sweden-based patternmaker Vanessa Hansen, the Peppermint Albion Blouse will have you swooning in style. A romantic wrap top with classy button loop closures and a distinguished double-darted bodice, it’s a refined take on the comfortable classic. With pleasingly puffy sleeves that come in short or long variations, both sporting some stunning statement cuffs, you can wow your wardrobe whatever the weather. The sooner you get to sewing, the sooner you can start languidly lounging in picturesque poses, showcasing your superior style!
