Who loves woven more than knit? I can’t ever decide. Every time I sew woven after I’ve been sewing a lot of knit, I think how wonderful it is, and then when I go back to knit after sewing woven for a while, I am like, why did I ever leave you? Ha. Anyway. I also can’t decide which I prefer to wear. Knit is the most comfortable, but then I put on a woven top like this, and think how it doesn’t cling to anything, and it’s actually pretty much as comfortable as my knits! Now you know a lot about me. #cantcommit #indecisive

So, this is the Brunch Blouse from Patterns for Pirates. It includes tank, cap sleeve, or short sleeve. It’s a dolman sleeve, so #fast and the back includes a seam down the middle for great shape, and easy swayback adjustments. It also includes optional waist ties, a henley placket, and dress lengths, so you really can make almost any look you imagine. There are a few great hacks on the blog for this as well!

I made this one out of voile, so it’s perfectly light, and comfortable. It’s a little easier to sew than rayon too, which is also one of my top fabrics of choice for apparel woven, so the dart was super easy to sew. This one is the cap sleeve option.

There is a mini version too, the Bitty Brunch Blouse, which I love! Also #alliterationismyfavorite 🙂 The style is so easy to wear, and perfect for all seasons. I think the dolman sleeve wears well under a layering piece like a cardigan. I did not make the final version of the Bitty Brunch Blouse, so I don’t have photos to share.
