The Penny is an adorable blouse that goes from sizes 6 months to 12 years, with two back options, three collar options, fluttered sleeves or sleeveless. It is a fitted blouse, so that it can be used with the Macy pinafore, with a romper or on its own.
As usual in Jilly Atlanta’s patterns, the instructions are very helpful and the inside finishing is very neat! The instructions recommend French seams and the collar and armhole are finished with bias binding, so the serger wasn’t even needed.
The option I’ve made has gathered collar and fluttered sleeves, both favourites of mine. I made size 7 for height with size 5 for width and I am so pleased with the fit. Trust me when I tell you that Jill made sure the fit was the best possible.
The fabrics I used are a very light cotton swiss dot in light pink and Liberty Tana Lawn for the collar and bias. I can guarantee you that the blouse looks as beautiful inside as it looks outside 😉
In the first stage of testing I made a blouse using the same fabrics, but in different colours and although the fit was changed after, M will wear this one for sure.
For today only (29th July), you can get the Penny Blouse for $5 only! 😊
