Burda blouse complete
Finally got around to finishing this blouse. Where does the time go?
In completing it, I can say that I do like this style, but am not sure it is wise for me to wear it! too short, just too short. But it will be a comfortable house blouse, and in a brighter pattern, with some piping like the original, I would make this again. In another Burda magazine, I found a very similar design without the front tucks and perhaps that would be the one to make a second time. I think this is a tuxedo styling, if I am not mistaken.
The blotch on the lower right front is water from the iron, which makes me admit it is time to replace this iron with a better quality one.
I did not expect to find the back of much interest. But I have to say I find these tucks really pretty.
The pattern was drafted well, everything fit beautifully together. I will have to trace off more Burda patterns for future garments, they seldom disappoint.
This blouse/shirt could be called a "poet shirt", something you wear when you are being creative. Perhaps I should take up painting or perhaps write a novel and wear it during that time!
And now on to Jacket #3 - the Palmer Pletsch jean jacket in a paisley brocade. Looking forward to this garment.
