Description

I made my first Alexander Blouse from a very inexpensive Indian fabric, although embellished and glamorous looking.

The colour is very discreet, almost romantic. I used bias tape to finish the peplum and olive-coloured buttons.

I like the antique feeling to it and the subdued colours.

Material Notes

polyester embroided georgette, 13 buttons, fabric made button loops, co-ordinated bias tape.

Intermediate

      Hi Scheri, I am not sure that it has a number, it is called “Alexander” after Alexander McQueen, and you can search on Burda website. There is a small fee (I believe $4) in order to download and print at home.

    This project IS based on Burda Style pattern, however, after I add it as a base project, it disappears. My apologies.
