The Hey June Lucerne Blouse is sure to become a fan favorite. I was lucky enough to get to test it and I’m already anxious to sew up more!
The Lucerne is the perfect summer blouse- nice and flowy with so much style. It features a curved shirt tail hem that is longer in the back. It works great for my ever-present half tuck in front but still covers my tush in the rear 😉
My favorite feature is the fantastic sleeve options. I sewed up the tie sleeves but the pattern also comes with a tulip sleeve choice as well. AND you can mix and match the sleeves from the Amalfi and Phoenix patterns too giving you a boatload of combos to try!
The Lucerne comes in sizes 2-22. I sewed up a straight size 6 and love the fit of it. The neckline is finished with a facing which is becoming my favorite way to finish a woven neckline (I can’t seem to get a bias neckline to behave!). This version is sewn up without alterations but I do think I’ll raise the neckline slightly in the future. Let’s just say the hubby is a fan of this neckline but I prefer a little more coverage.
I sewed mine up in a pretty striped rayon challis from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. This fabric moved so beautifully in the wind and I love how light and airy it is. It is a tiny bit sheer but not too bad. I did wear a tank under because between the neckline and opacity I knew I’d be more comfortable with it.
I loved seeing all the tester versions and with each new sew my wish list grew! Make sure to check them all out here. You can pick up the pattern here.
All summer long I’ve been dying to make me a few new woven tops. As soon as I saw the Summer Day top from Made Everyday, I knew it’d be perfect! Stay tuned to the end of this post to see how you can win your own copy, too. You know you totally want to be twinners 😉
I love all the options with this top. I struggled picking which option to do and actually think it took me more time to decide than it did to sew up. Anyone else get paralyzed with indecision when given so many cute choices?! Lucky for all of us, these sew up so quick we can make them all!
I’m lucky enough to get my hands on the newest Raspberry Creek Fabrics goodies and this pretty rayon challis print just needed to be this top. I think woven tees are the best to really let a print shine and this pattern just sings. Can you hear it?!!
I chose the cuff sleeve version because I can’t get enough of this look. I really love a good cuff and this one is super cute.
I did a size 4 and didn’t make any other adjustments. I sometimes like to add length since I’m 5’7″ with a longer torso but I’m really happy with were this hits.
One small thing to note, I found the armhole to be a tad low and wore a cap sleeve half shirt under just for my own comfort. It’s tricky to try to play with an armscyce because you want to keep the arm mobility. I think the comfort and ease wins out here and I’ll probably just keep making these without modifications.
I really love how this top pairs with jeans but think it’ll be cute dressed up with a pencil skirt too. I’m all about versatility and this pattern has it in spades.
Ready to win your own copy? I’m going to make it super easy on you. Just leave a comment on this post and tell me what version you’d make up first and I’ll pick a winner on Friday August 17th. Make sure to check out the Summer Day Top on Instagram to be blown away with inspiration. I can’t decide if I do a peplum version or a simple short sleeve version next (I may be counting down the days til my kids start school simply so I can whip up another one of these!).
