Zadie Blouse Hack: changing the neckline gathers to a bust dart
With Lisa

Class Overview

The Zadie Blouse is a loose-fitting, button-up blouse, with a simple short band collar, gorgeous gathered sleeves and cute button cuffs. One of the design features of Zadie is the soft volume around the neckline that gathers into the band collar, this creates a lovely detail and makes the blouse really flow.

However, if gathers aren’t your thing and you prefer a more simple neckline then you might want to follow this tutorial. Here, Lisa shows you how to remove the gathers at the neckline and rotate them instead into a bust dart creating a slightly more modest design.

The principles behind this tutorial would also work for almost any pattern where you want to remove some volume and pop it into a dart instead.

You can find the Zadie Blouse in our online shop here.
