Burdastyle Handbook Blouse made in satin

Added Feb 20, 2012

by cuada

Waterford, Ireland






I made this using the blouse pattern from the new Burdastyle Sewing Book. I plan to make everything in it, but I’ve been so busy with other work that the blouse is the only thing I’ve finished so far.

I made it from a printed satin, and some narrow satin ribbon. The only changes I made were to narrow the shoulders slightly, and I left out the side zipper (it goes on easily without it)

The book I would definitely recommend – well done to everyone involved, it’s one of the nicest sewing books out there. Really inspirational for anyone who sews, whether beginner or advanced. I have already told a few friends to buy it!

      thanks – i thought the trim broke up the pattern nicely – gave it a bit more structure i think :)

    It’s so lovely! It looks store-bought! I love the drapey satin.

      Thanks – I hadn’t planned to use the ribbon, but it just semmed to finish it nicely.
