Blouse geometric by MDM

Added May 30, 2014

France, France





Thus, in search of an elegant blouse, I literally adopted on the geometric blouse delivered by Burda model from April 14 (France) –
This sleek and timeless piece delivers definitivly the qualities to get you “Chic & Originality”;)! Differentiation is expressed through this “diagonal” superposition.

For the 1st time, I wish to play clearly one of the Spring-Summer trends colors : THE WHITE color , honored by the ELLE magazine and it was very well illustrated by Burda .
In contrast to the model achieved by Burda (only one front has lined), I wanted to bring more held to enhance the perceived quality . How ? I lined the two " fronts " and selected a thicker stretch fabric with 3 % elastane, which also facilitates the passage of my head ;)
During the achievement, I wanted to add an extra detail to improve the elegance (also the differentiation) through the insertion of two pleats in the front and rear handles (without having " puffed " sleeves in relation to the thickness of the fabric ) .
In conclusion, I extended the length of 8 cm to avoid exposing my navel .

Tips MyDress-Made :
Focus on the lining of the fronts : Don’t sew the sides to easily return your lined fronts. So you could sew the front with the back in one way.
To succeed spikes down each front, I advise you to iron the seams, pinking angles, push a pen until the end of the tip to get a perfect angle . To finish , iron again emphasizing the angle easily .
Important: If you choose this lined option, please use 20 inch more fabric .

    I love this pattern and your version of it. I like how you have lengthened the hem so your navel won’t show. Very elegant.
