The Ortense blouse is a stylish blouse featuring a front and back yoke, and a placket that you can position either at the front or back of your garment.
The slightly puffed sleeves are available in two lengths: ¾ sleeve length (right below the elbow) or long sleeved. The bottom edge of the blouse is also available in two different versions: a sweat-like banded bottom “blouson” version for stretch fabrics, and a straight hem version more suitable with woven fabrics.
The blouse has front and back yokes that offer many interesting possibilities such as mixing up a variety of fabrics, adding piping or ruffles so you may make a blouse that suits you best.
Please do not hesitate to take a look at the tutorial available in our e-shop. It will give you a thorough explanation as to how to turn the Ortense blouse into a dress (with pockets!).
