Papercut's Sequence Blouse is a versatile multi-view pattern, featured in their 2020 Rubix collection. With so many cute rayon and viscose prints in stock at the moment, we decided it was the perfect time to try it out! Cue this summery throw-on top that would pair seamlessly with loads of #MeMade wardrobe essentials. Read on for our review, kindly modelled by Fiona from our HQ team.
The Sequence pattern can be made up as top or dress, and can be styled with the wrap at the front and the back! The 3/4 flutter sleeve gives the style a playful yet elegant silhouette, which we love. We made up a size 2 for Fiona (which is similar to an NZ women's size 6) and this used the recommended 1.6m. Our Scribble Blooms Viscose Georgette - Dijon was perfect for this style, and overall the pattern was a quick and simple sew! We also used a matching Gütermann Sew-All Thread, 70cm of Fusible Interfacing - Stretch Weft / White, one Trocas Shell Button 12.7mm - Ivory and 4cm of Braided Elastic 3mm - White. Sequence is labelled as intermediate sewing level, which we'd agree with. There are a few cornered facings, a mini elastic loop, sleeve ease and a couple of intersections that take a little time and skill. We thought the fit on Fiona turned out wonderfully, and this simple pattern pairs perfectly with a pair of blue jeans!
If you're after a drapey, soft feel, rayon and viscose styles such as georgette, challis and crepe offer easy-care, machine washable alternatives to silk. We have SEW many beautiful prints available at the moment, including this bunch from our online store below!
