The temperature is rising and the days are getting longer, summer is definitely on its way! We love to plan our summer wardrobes and next to dreaming up pretty dresses we want to make some separates too. A blouse is the perfect garment to make in a light weight cotton or a beautiful drapey rayon, silk or crepe. The options are of course endless and we have gathered some of our favourite blouse patterns for you to peruse.
