Wikipedia: "A blouson or blouse jacket is a coat that is drawn tight at the waist,
causing it to blouse out and hang over the waistband."
Most of us probably think of a blouse as a type of top,
but blouse is also a verb.
Blouse = "to fall in a fold"
Many dresses, tops, sleeves, etc. are described as blouson, or having a blouson fit -- i.e. parts of the garment poof out somewhere at a gathering.
Today's Trend to Sew is Blouson Tops --
tops featuring blouson waistlines or sleeves, or both!
