Iris Top or Blouse Sewing Pattern - by Emporia

Sizes 6 - 24

Iris is a versatile casual top with three options. It features a three quarter length sleeve version with a ruffle at the shoulder and split side hems. Alternatively you can include a full flutter sleeve, giving a summery feel. Or you can decide to leave off the sleeves altogether, and bind your hems for a simple cami top.

It's easy to sew, with only two long darts from neck to bust.

The Iris pattern is the perfect blend of simple design with interesting detail - that ruffle and the side split do give it a nice designer feel. Great with jeans, skirts or shorts in the summer. This is a hugely versatile blouse that can be dressed up or down to suit your mood or the fabric you choose. Light-weight cotton is perfect for beginners or those new to sewing, but if you fancy a slightly more luxurious feel then go for lawn, sateen or even silk.


Iris comes in sizes 6 - 24.
