Jayne M. This was such a dream to sew. The instructions were super easy to follow and the pattern pieces fit perfectly together. I made view C and I love the cowl it's such a statement piece! I will definitely be making this blouse again! Jayne Loopy Mabel's Closet
Sue S. Pattern Union patterns are always a pleasure to sew: the layering option on the printing, the cup sizes, the precise drafting, the fact that there is always a new little thing to learn, plus the fact that the patterns are edgy. This pattern gives the option of a leisurely top right through to an heirloom blouse and everything in between! I actually watched the videos and can't believe how much I learned. They are clear and explicit and really add value. Thank you Sarah! I really like the set-in sleeve. So many current patterns use drop sleeves, which aren’t nearly as flattering. The sleeves fit the armhole perfectly requiring no gathering to ease it in.
Isabelle. I really liked the originality of the embroidery on the front. An easy pattern with several variations is great.
Eugenia T. I'm surprisingly delighted with how versatile and elegant Cora's simplicity is in all the styles. It also sews fast and is true to the fit.
Nicole W.What a perfectly balanced design. A comfortable cowl with bust darts that is equally stylish loose or tucked in.
Marian M. The Cora blouse is a lovely peasant-style blouse that can be layered over tanks or other tight-fitting clothing. It goes great with pants and skirts of all kinds and can take on so many different looks depending on what fabric is used. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a loose, flowy blouse!
Saba. The Cora blouse pattern is your go-to pattern for seasonal looks both professional and casual all year round. The video tutorial and clear instructions have you work through the steps accomplishing a quality piece at the end of it. All the little details in the blouses set of the classic looks. Each time I see a Pattern Union pattern I know I am learning new techniques and growing my sewing skill set. I have made two versions of the cowl neck and for sure will make the other two versions.
Deepthi G. It was fast and easy sew. Can achieve different looks with this pattern.
Ioanna K. The instructions were great and easy to follow even for a beginner such as myself. It took me a bit more time than I thought making it the first time but the second time it was so easy. I learned some very useful tips and techniques such as sewing my own bias binding.
June B. The Cora blouse is a basic blouse with lots of options. You can choose sleeves or sleeveless along with a cowl collar, front or back opening or even a heritage stitch option. There are so many possibilities of combinations with this wonderful pattern.
