The pattern is from the May 2010 issue of Burda Style magazine (style #128). I love the details in the design, the pleats for the puff of the blouse, the part elastic casing to hold the sleeve in place, the notched collar and most especially the peplum. I used a Japanese cotton print with little pink florals and used fewer but larger than recommended buttons in pink. I like to finish the interiors of the clothes I make as well as I can so that I do not have to fuss while washing and the cotton was easy to do this with. I used French seams mainly. This is a cropped blouse and falls around the waist.
Japanese cotton, floral print. 4 buttons, elastic for the sleeves.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
