Today I’m bringing you my favourite Minerva Crafts make to date – and the most ruffle-y blouse I’ve ever made, which is saying something because I’ve made some properly frilly things in the past.
The pattern I chose for this make was the Simplicity 8454 blouse. It’s one of Simplicity’s newest patterns releases. I’ve seen a couple of beautiful ones on Instagram recently and I knew this would be an absolute winner for me too!
I used the Atelier Brunette Terrazzo cotton gauze in Shell for this make. It’s light and floaty which is perfect for these kind of ruffles.
The blouse comes with 4 different views which have different sleeve variations and varying amounts of ruffles. Really though, you could continually mix and match the pieces to create more than the 4 views shown as they all fit together onto the same bodice pieces.
I chose to make View A – which was the reason I fell in love with this pattern in the first place. View A is the one with long sleeves and ruffles everywhere. Just everywhere. It’s amazing!
