The Helmi blouse is a semi-fitted blouse for woven fabrics that are lightweight.
You can choose the vibe with Helmi thanks to its two optional ruffles and two different collar styles! The only opening is at the neckline because the blouse pulls over the head. Bishop sleeves can be made in full-length or three-quarter length variations, and they gather into a binding. Three different bust fit styles are included to make fitting easier, and side bust darts and back darts provide a lightly tailored fit.
Learn how to make a stand collar and a peter pan collar. Since we love the little things in sewing, we've also added a special appendix with additional tips for sewing sheer fabrics!
Enjoy sewing Helmi in a dependable fabric like cotton or linen, or put yourself to the test with chiffon. We hope you'll like all the choices.
