Sewing Pattern Tutorial: The Cicadella Blouse

The Cicadella blouse is the little sweetness of the Fauvae Botanica collection. Its nicely scooped neckline at the back offers a incredibly feminine neckline.

The pattern is designed to offer you perfect finishes, thanks to French seam finishes and bias binding. Likewise, we guide you through each step to sew your first lined blouse if you wish to make Cicadella in our selection of sublime lace and cotton voile.

This blouse sewing pattern is suitable for all sewing levels, as it offers several finishing options. A beginner blouse pattern version is possible thanks to its different sleeves. For experienced sewers, we suggest sewing a cuff embellished with a pointed finish.
