The Grande Arche is a sewing pattern for a top or dress with bust darts, showing a perfect neckline with facings. The garment doesn't have any closures. There are options for short sleeves, long sleeves or stylish bell sleeves.
I opted for the modern twist of bell sleeves and used a lovely shirting with discreet stripes.
I am so pleased of the excellent fit. I am surprised that the back is looking so good without having any back darts. The sleeve caps fit beautifully in the armholes.
I hope that the little blouse will suit my new trousers to go with my capsule wardrobe #jecoudsmagarderobecapsule2017. Actually however, it is too hot to wear any longsleeved blouses.

I received the pattern by Julia but all the thoughts are my own.
Have a look at what other sewists have made for themselves shown at RUMS.
