Obélie is a blouse pattern for girls from 2 to 16 years old.
A bib and gathers embellish the front. Choose a fluid fabric with a rather heavy drape like viscose to highlight them. The bib can be embroidered, decorated with lace ribbons, or made with another fabric. Let your imagination run to get a personalized and unique garment.
The front neckline is original with its "rounded square" shape.
A slit at the back allows the passage of the head (it can be optional for larger sizes), and is closed by a link or a button. Long sleeves are flared at the bottom and tightened at the cuffs with an elastic for a nice ball shape.
You can also sew gathering cap sleeves, which the edge can be embellished with a decorative braid (lace or mini pompoms for example). Obélie can therefore be declined for all seasons.
This pattern is not difficult to make and is rather fast to sew.
