Description

I’ve been looking for a tie-neck blouse for ages, and for this fabric which I fell in love with in a fabric shop, so I pounced on this pattern in the May edition of Burda Style magazine.

I put it together in a weekend, which seems to be a reasonable length of time for a sewing project.

It was a little bit fiddly, it has a very narrow band round the middle and narrow bands on the sleeves and pleats at the front and back and it was a bit of a job to get it all together with the thin slightly slippy material.

Thankfully it has poppers instead of buttons as thin georgette and the buttonhole setting of my sewing machine is probably not a good combination.

I’m fairly happy with the way it turned out. It’s a bit big, I wouldn’t wear it not tucked in but it looks fairly good with the high-waisted pencil skirt.

    Lovely print and pattern, looks cute with the pencil skirt too, blouses are nice a little loose anyway
