The Peggy Blouse View More Versions
“Because you can create does not imply you can teach. Paganoonoo Peggy Blouse Pattern is the exception to that “rule”. Concise, clear, well-written. Thank you! I’ve read the instructions, and am eager to cut and stitch.”
Great directions – easy to use. I’ve made two of these shirts so far and have received lots of compliments.!
The Patti Blouse View More Versions
“Easy to follow directions with lots of great tips.”
“I love to sew and I do it nearly everyday but I am the type that either needs directions or a pattern, I am not creative or artsy but tell me how to do it and I’ll reproduce anything. For the past few months I’ve attempted this type of style several times on my own and each one was worse than the last lol. Today, I made my very first lagenlook blouse and I loved every minute of it! The directions were clear and extensive, seller responded super quick to a question I had and in great detail to be sure I understood it. I really hope she continues to make upcycled sewing patterns like this as I finally understood how to put these together. I agree with description, absolutely for the intermediate sewer or advanced beginner. I now have the confidence to keep making them and each one will be better than the first!”
The Cindy Blouse View More Versions
Featured on It’s Sew Easy series 1300 on PBS. The CINDY BLOUSE creates a wonderful optical illusion…with a decorative front panel in an “hourglass” shape, mimicking a curvy bust, waist, and hips. The panel breaks up the breadth of the blouse drawing the eye to the curved shape. Ladies, this is great news for all of us, and especially for curvy girls like me!
The silhouette features the signature Paganoonoo high/low hem and loose fitting hip. This blouse has 3/4 sleeves with a decorative band. The side insets add 6″ to 9″ of ease at the hip. Optionally, a double collar adds flair and dresses up the look even more.

The SANDY BLOUSE features a unique back design that from the side view, the back pleated panel poufs out, tucking under at the hip level creating a 1920’s cocoon coat type profile. The overall effect is feminine and comfortable with a bit of drama. The decorative circle motifs provide perfect vignettes for applique techniques or can feature your machine embroidery, quilting or fabric collage skills. … !! Promises Lots of Compliments !! …
