If there's one pattern who deserves their video tutorial, it's Violette.
It is a pattern that was part of my very first collection, almost a symbol and I am very proud to see that this pretty blouse does not go out of fashion: the simplicity of its line, its clean front and the work of the pleat, the buttoned yoke at the back continue to seduce you and its my greatest pleasure!
I took a lot of pleasure to sew this new version... I was missing a new Violette for my collection ;) For this tutorial, I give to you Violette with a braided gold piping from Pretty Mercerie on the back, and in a nice Anne Kerdilès crepe, whose delicate patterns in shades of blue on a very pale pink background perfectly match the timelessness of the pattern.
This fabric is called "Jardin Anglais", a promise that seduced me because I melt for delicate floral patterns and the softness of the colours. If I had a little lady to dress I would have sewn her a matching pretty Miss Violette :)
The blouse Violette is a very accessible sewing pattern, the technical stitches are sewing the facing, sewing the hollow pleat and mounting the sleeves with absorption of the fullness at the head of the sleeve.
