Amour fou blouse

Added Apr 2, 2010

Copenhagen, Denmark






I found the pattern for this blouse in an old Burda magazine (8/2009 nr 117). It was really easy to make, although I needed some help with “rolled hem stitching” the edges of the ruffles (Thanks to KateXXX for some great advice!)
The spread in the magazine was called Trs chic and I do feel kind of french and chic in it ;-), plus it can be worn in many different ways.

Material Notes

Silk, interfacing




Garment Type

    SO SO LOVELY! Fits you so well. The pattern looks like it was tailored to your ‘look.’ Very modern, 40’s perhaps?

    tres chic indeed. I’m in the middle of making this one… was considering making something else… but maybe will make it after all.

    nice, very elegant! I’d say with the rolled hem it would be intermediate.

      You might be right. I made the rolled hem on an overlock though, which is quite easy, so I didn’t consider it a difficult feature. But I guess most beginners don’t have one, so I suppose you’re right :-)
