Due to the ongoing impact of measures relating to the coronavirus pandemic and Brexit, sales of my PDF sewing patterns have temporarily been suspended.

Catherine Blouse PDF pattern


The Catherine blouse is an elegant and versatile take on the classic tie blouse. Its detachable tie can be worn tied in a number of ways, or not at all, and as a sleeveless blouse it is great both for layering and in warmer weather. ** This product is a PDF printable sewing pattern and not the physical garment shown.**

Out of stock


  • Sleeveless, collared blouse
  • Bias bound armscyes and neckline
  • Separate tie
  • Centre back neckline opening, fastened with hook and eye

Fabric & notions

I’d recommend a medium/blouse weight crepe, soft cotton, linen, rayon, viscose, silk and other drapey fabrics.

You’ll need:

  • Bias binding for the neckline and armscyes (approx 1.5m and with a folded width of approximately ½” – ¾”).
  • A small hook and eye set for the neckline closure (or you could sew a thread chain and button if you prefer).

Fabric requirements

  • Main fabric: 1.25 m (all sizes)
  • Lightweight fusible interfacing (0.5m) – optional, depending on your fabric choice and how firm you want your collar to look. Omit the interfacing for a softer collar look.


* This pattern is from the Pearson and Pope pattern collection (previously a separate brand under and has not yet been rebranded to ‘Michelle Sews’ or updated with the newer Michelle Sews size range. Please see below for measurement details. *

The pattern testers said…

“Beautiful. Nice idea with the collar, and great fit!”

“I even got the collar right ;)”

“The fit throughout the body is perfect! It is very flattering while not being too tight. For me this is the perfect amount of ease in a blouse like that.”


“Fit wise it’s perfect – I love my blouses to fit fairly closely, but not too tight, obviously. I’m very happy.”

@orangesews made another #msp_catherine blouse, this time with an accent fabric and I am 100% here for it! 😍

The Catherine blouse looks great worn together with the Agnes skirt. @sleepless_in_bavaria used a contrast fabric for the tie of her #msp_catherine top, and the dusky pink shade of her msp_agnes is the stuff of spring wardrobe dreams.
