Description

I needed a machine washable blouse for work so I chose the classic Hepburn style blouse shown in Burda’s 06/2011 issue with black cotton lawn. Contrasting white satin bias binding was used to finish the neckline and the sleeve hem instead of facing as recommended by the instruction. The bias binding was first machine sew to the blouse then hand slip stitched to finish. I also made a removable clip-on corsage with the left over fabric. You can see more details on my blog post:

Material Notes

black cotton lawn, concealed zipper, bias binding, metal clasp for the corsage, straight grain fusible stay tape

    Very pretty! I wanted to try this pattern but it is for petitte measures and I have no idea how to adjust it for my hight. I love your version!

      I think the only difference between petite version and standard is the length of the garment. You might be able to cut the pattern horizontally above and below the bust and spread to make up for the desired length. :)
