Margot Blouse – République du Chiffon & Cosmic Blue – Atélier Brunette


Right in time for spring the petals on my new shirt are in bloom!

Giusto in tempo per la primavera sono sbocciati i petali della mia nuova camicia!

DSC_5158_webChanges to the pattern:

Not many really!

  • I made a size 36 instead of 38 as I was worried the blouse would be too loose (there are no darts,)
  • I moved the shoulder seam for the usual forward shoulder
  • I used flat-felled seams all over for a professional finish
  • I made self cover buttons all over

Modifiche rispetto al modello:

Non molte in realta’!

  • Ho cucito la taglia 36 invece della 38 perché temevo fosse troppo larga (non ci sono pinces) [nota: le taglie sono francesi]
  • Ho spostato la cucitura della spalla come al solito
  • Ho usato le cuciture classiche da camicia (qualcuno conosce il termine italiano?)
  • Ho creato dei bottoni ricopertiDSC_5162_web

The instructions (in French) on the pattern are not super detailed. But in all fairness the only two difficult parts are well explained with drawings, e.g. how to assemble the collar and button placket. So if you like the shirt, go ahead and buy this pattern! It’s lovely and you can even make a sleeveless summer version

And you know, you can ask me if you have question ;)

Le istruzioni (in francese) non sono dettagliatissime. Anche se in realta’ le uniche parti difficili sono spiegate con disegni molto dettagliati, come assemblare il collo e creare l’abbottonatura (scusate anche qui mi mancano le parole). Quindi se vi piace la camicia non esitate a comprare il modello  Mi piace davvero molto e si può facilmente farne una versione sbracciata.

E se avete domande potete chiedermi senza problemi ;)


If you notice some pulling on my rounded back you´re seeing correctly. I didn’t bother making the adjustment though I should have! How many times will I repeat this? I even made a muslin

The fabric is a light poplin and feels very soft on the skin. It’s certainly worth the premium price. I can’t wait to see the upcoming Atelier Brunette next month!

Have a great week!

Se notate che la stoffa tira un po’ sulle spalle avete visto bene. Non avevo voglia di modificare il modello per la mia gobbetta ma avrei dovuto farlo! Quante volte ancora lo ripeterò! Avevo anche fatto un modello di prova

La stoffa è un cotone leggero ed è molto morbido sulla pelle. Sicuramente anche se cara è una bella stoffa.  Non vedo l’ora di scoprire la nuova collezione di Atelier Brunette il mese prossimo!

Buona settimana!

    Looks great, Silvia. The fabric is lovely and the neckline super cute. Was it very time consuming to put together?

      Thanks Andrea. The most time-consuming part was figuring out how to sew the placket and ironing on interfacing. The petals are not so difficult to apply. I could totally see you wearing this shirt ;o)

    No conocía este patrón! Desde luego te ha quedado fantástica, con todos sus detalles. Ese cuello tiene pinta de ser bastante dificil de coser! Otra creación preciosa!
    Ah, que no, que no me colé en la clase, soy la profe de verdad! :D

    What a pretty blouse! The collar looks very interesting, very fitting for spring like the shape of flower petals. :) And I really like your self-covered buttons.

    What a fun collar! And I love the detailing on the front placket too! It’s these kinds of details that really take an attractive shirt up several notches to one of a kind couture. And to do all those self covered buttons…genius!

      Thanks so much Sue. The placket and the collar are actually the reasons why I bought this pattern…well and the fabric too!

    Absolutely gorgeous! And know what? Cosmic blue is my favourite Atelier Brunette fabric :) I like so much how you look in shirts! And this one looks amazing on you. It would looks as good with a skirt as with a pair of jeans or smart trousers. The collar makes the shirt look unforgettable! Please, make us more shirts :)

    Glorious! Simply glorious. You must be so thrilled with this. The finish is just so professional and the fabric is to. die. for!

    That collar is so much fun. This shirt is a little too classical/formal/professional looking to be of any use for me, but it does look great. The fabric is really nice and the covered buttons are the finishing touch.

    Avevo visto questo cartamodello nel sito di République du Chiffon e aveva colpito molto anche me! Il colletto è eccezionale! Con le pinces sarebbe stato ancora meglio, secondo me..

      Grazie! Volendo puoi aggiungere le pinces al modello oppure usare il disegno del collo su un modello con le pinces…ora ho voglia di fare la versione estiva!
