I am trying to make a pattern out of every Burdastyle issue, so this blouse is my effort for September 2011 (09/2011 Sleeveless blouse #128). The blouse was quite big and boxy so I brought the seams in a lot, but I think I needed to bring them in a little more. The skirt is a simple waistband type skirt, where I double box pleated the body of the skirt on the waist band. I will have a tutorial for this soon… if only there were more hours in the day.
Does anyone else find that the Burdastyle patterns fit quite poorly? At least I am improving my fitting skills!
