Added Dec 5, 2010
This is a pattern from Burda Magazin 12/2010. I made the blouse first, planning to sew the skirt later, so that I get the option to combine the blouse with several skirts or to wear it with the matching one as a dress
In my opinion the shape is a bit 80th or even 40th, isn’t it?
I modified the original sleeves because they looked ridiculous at me. In the muslin- picture you can see both sleeves: The right sleeve is my own and the left is the original one from Burda.
For the first time ever I used high quality silk! The only disadvantage is the fact that the fabric is statically charged, especially if it is winterly and the air is frosty. Any suggestions to avoid?
Over all I am pleased how the blouse turned out.
