    Blouse parfaite. Les différentes options de manches proposés permettent de la porter aussi bien l’été que l’hiver. Avec passepoil ou croquer. Les explications sont très simples à suivre, très bien détaillées avec de multiples photos. Un plaisir à coudre !

    Hello. I love the pattern from compangie m.
    Because of my three kids I have not the time to swee a lot but the day I made the Mara blouse i had a bad day and it turned into a special day!!!
    I have been soooooo prood and happy afterwards.
    I thought that it’s soooo difficult that I had the pattern for quit a while. But with the good discription it was really good to make.
    Everybody how see my daughter with the mara blouse likes it a lot and even the mom’s ask if its avalible in their size.
    I would make one for me too.
    Thanks for the chance to make wonderful things by myself!

    The buttons, piping and pleating make this blouse look very sophisticated, but the clear instructions that come along with the pattern make it very easy to sew. I’ve already made about 5 versions – non of which looks the same – of this blouse, so I’m not lying when I say I absolutely love it! (

    Het Mara bloesje was liefde op het eerste gezicht. Het ziet er moeilijk uit maar vol goede moed ben ik eraan begonnen. Het vlotte heel goed door de duidelijke werkbeschrijving én foto’s. Nu is het bloesje voor onze kleine meid af en wat voor complimenten hebben we al gekregen! Het mooiste vond ik van mijn schoonmoeder, naaister van opleiding, die me zei dat ze het zelf niet beter kon. Ik ben zo trots. Het is een prachtig bloesje en er zullen er zeker nog meerdere volgen voor ons meisje. :)

    The Mara Blouse is one of my favorite girl’s shirt patterns. It has sophisticated details, but is still quick and easy to make. With different fabric combinations, optional piping or trim, and several sleeve styles the simple design allows for a ton of customization. I have sewn two Mara Blouses but have not begun to exhaust the possibilities of this sweet little top.

    My most recent Mara:

    The charm of this blouse is in the details. The front button placket and pin tucks give it a sweet vintage feel. This is a look that will never go out of style. The options to customize this top are endless with mixing up the placket, blouse and piping fabric choices.
    I love a pattern that is easy to follow and The Mara blouse pattern is just that. The detailed photos and easy to follow instructions make this top a dream to sew. I am already planning 3 different versions for Miss G’s spring/summer wardrobe.

    Very cute pattern and so easy too make! And with a little variation here and there (i.e. button border or jersey yoke) it is even fit for boys! Très chic!

    Eine wunderschöne Bluse für kleine Mädchen. Der Schnitt ist so vielfältig und die Anleitung sehr genau.
    Mich hat er in jeder Hinsicht überzeugt und meine kleine Tochter trägt ihr neues Kleidungsstück mit Begeisterung.

    The instructions are easy to follow and the range of sizes is excellent. It’s an ideal pattern for a young girl because you can change the look without much effort. Adding piping or a contrasting fabric in the yoke. Adding to the length to make a dress is another option. It’s also a fairly easy pattern to make so an ideal item of clothing for an inexperienced sewer to try. I think I’ll be making quite a few of these for my grand-daughter!
