Here’s my first creation from a burda style pattern, my version of the Alexander blouse. I love the unique design of this blouse and as it fit and flattered me, I didn’t make any changes.
At first I was uncertain about the fabric I was using (a beautiful silk charmeuse I got for a great price on Etsy) because I’m not usually a prints kind of woman. Part-way in, though, I decided it was perfect for this blouse.
I didn’t find the pattern instructions particularly illuminating (what’s with the tiny little pictures?), but I nevertheless got through it without too much trouble. I’m really pleased with the end result – now I just need to get a new job so I have somewhere to wear it!
