Burda_7777_-_bow-ing_quadruple_seven_front_a_large

Description

The sleeve detail is what attracted me to the design. The sleeve is pleated at the shoulders for a puffed effect.

I like the shaping too. The twin waist darts keep the waist fitted. The darts remain open below bust (it is not tapered off) so there is more fabric and gives a nice silhouette. I didn’t make the blouse too fitted but a slightly smaller size would emphasize the effect.

I like seeing the nice pop of color of this blouse as I open my wardrobe everyday.

I used the envelope version of this pattern, Burda 7777. The pattern is also available for download here in German on the German Burda site. I reviewed the pattern on my blog over here.

Material Notes

I used poplin and it was a stable weave fabric and smooth in texture without being too thick for a blouse.

    This is just beautiful, you must be really pleased, I just love the bright colour. You’ve aroused my taste buds for autumn sewing later in the year.

      Thank you, yes, I love it. Just edited the project to add fall to the seasons above.
