Yep, I sewed another Burda 9-2013-121 blouse.
Just when ya thought it was safe from any more oversized blouses – what happens? I make a second one from my Burda quest for September.
I must say, I wasn’t totally thrilled with the first one. Being oversized I wasn’t sure if I would really like it.
I did go down one size but it is still pretty shapeless. But I love it. I have worn this one a lot this summer So, I figured I must have another.
I have worn this second blouse quite a bit since I have sewn it, too.
Why it is such a great blouse: it goes with everything: shorts, skits, pants. It is the perfect lightweight blouse to throw over a T-shirt in the evenings as a light weight jacket.
This time I sewed it from polyester fabric – I think?! The content is unknown since the fabric was given to me. What makes this second blouse so nice it that it drapes better and flows so nicely. Sort of elegant in an oversized-blouse-fashioned way!
I sewed the sleeves with a sleeve placket and the buttons came from my button stash.
However, I was unable to get a nice sewn collar so I used my old stand by technique and gathered a bit of the selvedge edge and put that in the collar stand.
A quick and easy way to finish the blouse and no one else is the wiser expect for all of you that I are reading here right now.
So the Burda quest for September was a double success. Now, moving on to Burda October.
