The Lotte Blouse is an off-the-shoulder top that can be easily sewn up in an afternoon by a Beginner/Intermediate sewer. It has a ruffled elasticated neckline and three-quarter length sleeves. Although this is a fairly basic design, there are so many creative ways you could make this blouse unique. Add several inches to the sleeve length for long sleeves during cooler months, or cut them shorter for puffy sleeves in the summertime. You could lengthen the hem and instantly transform this blouse into a dress or a tunic. The possibilities really are endless!
SEWING LEVEL: Beginner/Intermediate.

::PRINTING YOUR PDF PATTERN::
After downloading the files to your computer, you can print out the pattern using your home printer. The pattern pages are formatted to fit US standard page size (8.5” x 11”) as well as A4 page size (8.26” x 11.69”). Be sure the printer settings are set to “actual size” and only print the first page that includes the 1” test line before printing the rest of the pattern. Measure the 1” line with a ruler to be sure the pattern pages will print accurately. If the measurements are correct, go ahead and print the entire pattern. Assemble the printed pattern by cutting out the pattern pieces and matching them together by the letters and numbers that are marked on each pattern (“1A” to “1A”, “1B” to “1B” etc.) and then taping them together.
