Fast forward a couple of years and I started reading my friend Mie blogposts about her Burda Style creations and loved them so much I thought I had to give them another try. And I am so glad I did! I still can’t understand a word of the sewing instructions but the fitting of these patterns is absolutely great for my body type.
So here is my last Burda Style make!
PATTERN: Triangle Back Blouse from Burda Style Magazine 04/2016 Pattern 114. This is an easy fitting and easy to make blouse. Though from the front it looks like quite a simple blouse (I skipped the front opening), there is this really cute v-line neck opening at the back. The neckline is finished with a facing, my favorite way of finishing this kind of blouses. And there are bust darts… Oh how I feared bust darts… But, but after watching a couple of Youtube videos about it, I am ok making them now. This blouse has been in heavy rotation and I have already plans to make another one. So can this be the beginning of a new love affair?
FABRIC: Liberty Mitsi from Cousette. A couple of years ago Cousette, a lovely French online shop, was kind enough to sponsor Paris Sew Social and I got this gorgeous piece of Liberty fabric from them. Of course, I was so afraid of cutting it stayed in my stash all this time. But I am glad I waited! This fabric has the perfect drape for this pattern. Of course sewing with Liberty was a pleasure and wearing Liberty is also a pleasure…
