Description

A light floaty blouse to wear with my bright pink jeans. I made this pretty blouse using Burda magazine pattern #139, 6/2012. I had to down size this pattern to fit me which was quite easy as this is a straight forward pattern.

      No Irina, I bought this fabric in Brisbane (The Fabric Store). I bought quite a lot of silk in China and I am yet to sew it. My fabric addiction was well satisfied in China although I don’t like the pressure sales people there put on you to buy and then the haggling of prices. But I did buy some lovely pieces and if I paid too much because I don’t like to haggle, so be it. I came home very happy.

      Thanks so much Erin. This fabric was from The Fabric Store in the Valley, near James St.

    I can’t say I like the peplum trend, but this one looks so cheerful and easy to wear!

      Thanks, I too can’t say I am a fan of the peplum but there have been some gorgeous examples lately and I think they look great on others but most likely not on me.

    Hi! You´ve been busy alright! Love this blouse. The print and the colours are vibrant and so spring-y! Yeah! I want to see it with you in it too!

      Thanks Merche. This is the same pattern you used to make your girlfriend a blouse. One day I will get my daughter over when she isn’t working to become a photographer for me. She usually pops over for dinner on her way home from work at night and the light isn’t great for photographs.

    You have been busy! This is lovely. I love the fabric. Can’t wait to see the jeans. Hopefully you can get yours to fit better than mine.x

      Thanks. I actually bought the bright pink jeans in a sale in Paris in July and found this fabric at the Fabric Store when I got home. I have made lots of pants over the years and know where to tweak to fit my body. But when I change pattern company’s I usually find problems which I have done today. But it isn’t a major problem fortunately.

      Thanks Ralf. Yes, I wish I had a photographer handy but I never seem to find one when I need one.
