“Our blouse is feminine, with a downtown edge. This style flatters the torso while accentuating the waist with a drawstring and gathered skirting. If sewing silk seems daunting, use cotton — the sewing process will be much more forgiving. For the trim, try pulling inspiration from vintage chemises and use a contrasting color, like tan velvet on a cream-colored silk blouse.”
- from the BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook (pg. 89).
Please Note: This pattern does not contain a seam allowance.
Fabric, zipper, lightweight fusible interfacing, elastic, ribbon or trim and a safety pin.
