Lucerne Blouse – sewing for women
Since the release of Hey June’s Lucerne pattern, I’ve made two different versions. But I realize they never made their way over to the blog! These shirts are some of my favorites, and despite the word “blouse” in the name, they’re comfortable enough to wear hanging out at home.

I’ve been a huge fan of Hey June patterns for a long time. I’ve probably sewn the Union St. Tee 50 times. (Maybe that’s exaggerating? All I know is I’ve sewn MANY versions). You can see a a couple of the Unions I’ve sewn (one a dress version!):
The Lucerne has a few different options and views. The basic bodice of the two versions I made are the same, but the sleeve shape is different. This version with the ties on the sleeves is super fun and much easier to sew than I expected.
I sewed this white linen version for an event last year, and it’s so comfortable!
The mustard linen version I made for my last birthday is my absolute favorite, though. It’s my favorite color, the linen is fantastic, and it’s not white… because five kids.
I chose to do a different sleeve version for this top, and this is the sleeve I would do next time! And yes, there will be a next time. It’s such a wearable top – dress it up, dress it down. Choose a fabric that can be versatile like linen, so you will be comfortable wearing it at home, at work, or to a nice dinner. Plus, look at that lovely hemline!
If you’ve ever been on the fence about buying any Hey June patterns, I highly recommend them. They’re easy to put together, the construction is impeccable, and the directions are always clear.
