Black and Electric Watermelon Burda Blouse

Added Jun 13, 2012


Norcross, Georgi...






This is the blouse from the BurdaStyle Handbook I used a lightweight cotton for the black so its nice and airy for this summer heat. The Electric watermelon is a silk blend from my stash. This is my first attempt to sew from the handbook I was a little daunted at first by all of the lines on the sheets but I think it turned out alright I feel good!

    Beautiful! I wish there was a picture with the blouse on you rather than the doll!

      lol I know but it was so much easier to take the pic plus I was not into washing my hair and getting dolled up at that moment I had the squirrel eye from staring at seams for so long.
