MORE ON THE PATTERN
UK sizes 16–28, with both B-cup and D-cup options.
Make a statement with Bakerloo’s extra-extravagant ruffled collar and va-va-voluminous sleeves!
With both a blouse and dress option, and suitable for a wide range of fabrics and potential customisation, this is a pattern designed to be frilly fun! Closing with a button and keyhole at the centre-back, the pattern skims the bust into a loose fit around the waist for ease and comfort – after all, that’s the name of the game right now. The balloon sleeves (with two different length options) gather into elasticated cuffs with ruffled edges echoing the collar. The dress variation has a full gathered (and pocketed) skirt – grunge it up with tights and biker boots for the winter then drift around in breezy cotton lawn and sandals all summer. Wear the blouse on its own or under pinafores, dungarees and v-neck sweaters for statement layering.
Skill level: intermediate.
Light to medium-weight wovens e.g. lawn, poplin, chambray, silk dupion, crepe, fine needlecord; any fabric with enough body to create the collar but not too much bulk to gather into the frill! Of course you could use a contrast fabric or even a readymade trim for the frill…
0.6m of 1cm/1/2”-wide bias binding for the neckline
0.8m of 1cm/1/2”-wide elastic (or sufficient to encircle your arms for the sleeve cuffs)
50 x 60cm/20 x 24” square of lightweight interfacing for the collar
All versions: 1 x 1cm/ 1/2 inch button (or preferred size)
