MEET ASTER, A SIMPLIFIED CLASSIC WITH ENDLESS OPPORTUNITY FOR VARIATION.

Who doesn’t love the simple appeal of a button up? They are a classic for a reason, they easily transition from season to season, and they are a multi-purpose wardrobe staple. A good button-up shirt can take you from work to play.

Aster is a modern and simplified version of this iconic garment. The button-up style instantly lends a put-together quality to the blouse, while the v-neckline is universally flattering, and eliminates the fuss of a collar. Bust darts offer soft shaping, giving Aster its flattering body-skimming fit.

This highly customizable pattern is perfect for an advanced beginner or an experienced sewist looking to refine their skill set. With its semi-fitted shape, 3 mix-and-match versions, and a wide variety of fabric options, Aster can be made to wear during any season.

Version 1 has a short cuffed sleeve for a casual look you will want to wear all the time. Seen in a lovely raw silk.

Version 2 has skill-building details like a pleated bodice, and a full-length sleeve with a cuff and placket. Shown in a chambray dot denim.

Version 3 features a delicate flutter sleeve that offers the blouse soft feminine ease. Shown in a pretty rayon.

MAKE YOUR ASTER ONE OF A KIND

Aster is highly customizable. Why don’t you try:

Mixing and matching between the 2 bodice options and 3 sleeves.
Use vintage or one-of-a-kind buttons.
Use self-made bias tape.
Use a contrast yoke lining.
Add contrasting topstitching.
