Free PDF sewing pattern: Marissa sleeveless blouse

Summer is finally coming in Toronto! It is expected to be warm from next week, and my family is planning to bring our plants to the garden – no more bringing them out and in every day!

I am in the creative mood, and today I am sharing my new pattern for summer: the Marissa sleeveless blouse.

This simple blouse features a V shaped yoke at the front and a gathered main piece. What I love most about it is that it can cover a fat belly! Let’s say I can eat to my fullest and still don’t have to worry my tummy will show.

Let’s have a look at the blouse simulated in 3D:

This is on the model.

The pattern contains 6 pieces as follows:

  1. Back – 1pc cut on fold
  2. Back yoke – 2pcs
  3. Front – 1pc cut on fold
  4. Front yoke – 1pc cut on fold
  5. Neckline bias binding – 1pc cut on bias
  6. Armhole bias binding – 2pcs cut on bias

Sewing instruction

  1. Cut fabric according to instruction. You can change the direction of the fabric to your liking (the blouse model is wearing has the yoke cut to the grain line, and the main pieces cut perpendicularly to the grain line).
  2. Gather the front piece and the back pieces by sewing 2 parallel lines using longest stitch. Pull the threads at the ends and distribute the gatherings evenly. Measure with the yoke pieces until they match.
  3. Place front yoke and front piece right side facing, pin and sew.
  4. Place two back yoke pieces right side facing. Sew a 1 inch line from the bottom end of the back yoke toward the neckline. Press the seam open. Sew a straight line 1/4 inch from the fold line to finish the back neck opening.
  5. Place back yoke and back piece right side facing, pin and sew.
  6. Place the sewn front piece and back piece right side facing, sew the shoulder and side seam.
  7. Fold and press bias tape. Pin to the armholes and neckline and sew the bias binding.
  8. Finish the neckline with a hook and loop fastening.
  9. Hem the blouse.
  10. Press the blouse and you are done!

The Marissa sleeveless blouse is a super simple project that is suitable for even the sewing novices! Put it on with shorts or skirt, and you are ready for a breezy summer day in the sun!

  1. Pinterest is not working for me with your site. When I click the pinterest icon to follow, it opens Pinterest but not to your page. The pinterest “save” button on your page is blacked out, and when I use try to use the Chrome extension, I get an error message: “Oops! Could not save this page”. I also had no luck searching for your site on pinterest. Is this a general issue, or is this something that is only happening to me?


    1. Hi Judy, it’s not your problem. Pinterest blocked my website because they thought I was associated with spam activities which I was definitely not. I have sent appeals to them but they refused to unblock my website, and I am trying to figure out how I can prove the authenticity of my website and get it unblocked.

  2. Thanks for the free pattern:)
    Can you tell me the amount of material that is required for this top, I can’t see it anywhere!
