The Gibson Blouse
Channel your inner Mary Tyler Moore with a classic necktie button front blouse updated with a modern silhouette with an empire waist. This pattern features a gathered skirt that is higher in the front and lower in the back for more coverage as needed. This style is great for petites because the empire waist position elongates the torso and is great for covering the problematic midriff area. Choose which look suits you best by mixing and matching the neck tie and sleeve options with the basic body. The front bodice seams of the blouse allow for easy adjustments for smaller or larger chests.
This pattern is best for light weight non-stretch fabrics.
