Rebecca Page Patterns just released the classic button-up blouse pattern. As a brand ambassador, I get sneak peeks of upcoming patterns and early access. As soon as I heard about this pattern I knew I wanted to sew it! Before I even had it completed I knew I wanted to do a sew-along with all of you!
The sew-along will start Friday, October 15th. The blog post will go up along with a video. The blouse does not take long to sew but does include a few steps such as buttonholes and cuffs that if you're new to sewing you'll want to slow down on and probably even practice a few buttonholes before stitching them out on the blouse. I plan to break the sew-along up into two videos.
You will need to purchase the classic button-up blouse pattern. Don't forget to make sure you have your fabric ready to go before Friday. Not sure how? You can find out everything you need to know in our post Getting Your Fabric Ready To Sew.

Grab Some Fabric To Create Your Classic Blouse!
For the Classic Blouse, you can use nearly any light to medium weight woven fabric. The first time I made the blouse I used medium-weight cotton and I love how the shirt hangs. This time I'm planning to use a flannel blend or denim fabric.
However, your fabric choice will be critical in how the garment fits and moves so please choose with the end look you are wanting in mind:
- A light weight woven such as chiffon, organza, or georgette will be billowy and floaty looking, and may be see-through (or require a slip underneath for coverage).
- A light to mid weight woven such as cotton lawn, cotton voile, silk, rayon, silk crepe, crepe de chine, taffeta, or silk satin will drape.
