I think that you may not find the template of blouse on the web but there are sites where you can create your own design online then print it out.

You can also learn basic things from this site:……

You can also download a pdf file from website:…;_ylu=X3oDMTE2azYza2d1BGNvbG8DdwRsA1dTMQRwb3MDOQRzZWMDc3IEdnRpZANGNzk5Xzc4/SIG=14o6i4idg/EXP=1156701705/**http%3a//…='sew%2520pattern%2520blouse%2520draft'

The basic method of cutting is to take the measurement of your chest (around). If your chest is 32" you need to divide it by 4 and it would be 8". If your shoulder is 14" you need to divide it by 2 and it would be 7". Now fold your Paper in two fold, first lengthwise then widthwise.

Measure it from top to lengthwise at the folded side and mark at 8". Again measure 7" widthwise and mark it. Likewise mark for neck by dividing the chest measurement by 12. The same measurement would be used to shape arms. Cut it leaving seam allowance. You will also need to give darts for shape in front.

Thanks Sherly…

Traditional Indian blouse, worn with saree or ghagara. Very short and closely fitted, it usually ties at the back with single ties or a criss-cross shoe-lace style drawstring, or it ties into a knot at the front in the middle of the chest.

blouse reveals more than it conceals. Its cut, colour and the way it is worn would tell you about whether the woman is casual, carefree, bold, reticent or orthodox. It is a dead giveaway of a woman’s attitude and personality.

Little wonder, blouses are no longer treated as mere decorative garments. As designer Suneet Verma puts it: "It is a statement of a woman’s sense of freedom, an expression of female vanity and, most importantly, a celebration of feminine grace."

A blouse most commonly refers to a woman's shirt. Blouses are often made of cotton or silk cloth and may or may not include a collar and sleeves. They are generally more tailored than simple knit tops, and may contain "feminine" details such as ruffles or embroidered decorations.

Call it blouse, choli, shirt or by any other name, this graceful functional traditional Indian blouse with beautiful designs, vivid colors, studded with pearls, beads and sequin embroidery and colors such as black, silver, maroon, red, navy, blue, purple, fuchsia, green, lime, olive, yellow, teal, aqua, gray, white, dark green, khaki, camel, mustard, gold, creme, brown, burgundy, bright red, royal blue, deep purple, pink, golden, maroon, dark orange, tan, rust, rose, emerald green, hot pink, chocolate, bright, mild, light, dark, pale ivory, deep cream, pink, lilac, lavender, pearl and many more colors.

Today, there are numerous styles of blouses, designer blouse, brightly embroidered, waist-length bare-backed blouse, exclusive cholis. The inspired by the booming Indian fashion industry. You can vary the collar, sleeve and length as you choose. Originally, Indian blouse only covered the front, now they have evolved to include versions covering front and back to midriff. The traditional form is still commonly worn in Rajasthan.
