Butterfly blouse with matching pants/skirt

Added Jun 16, 2012

by irmchen

Pusemuckel, Germany






The pattern Burda Magazin 7/2011_105 was used . It comes without sleeves so I added some from a pattern out of a German Pattern Magazin called Diana-Moden

It was way difficult to stitch up the blouse because of the slippery silko organza fabric.

My blouse should match my pink pants which I sewed before. And I also stitched up a matching skirt. (Burda 3/2011_122)

I LOVE my blouse! :D

      I am not really sure but I believe it is the one which features simplicity patterns. I added the link above.

    Irmchen this is lovely! …..I see what likes like miles of baby or rolled hem – beautifully finished as always.

    It’s gorgeous! I love it, too! The fabric is really pretty but I can imagine how much trouble you had sewing it. I said “never again”, but then I buy another piece of this slippery fabric because it looks so nice. ;-)

    this blouse is so cute!! I also love the rhetoric question on ill- fitting pants. I have spent weeks now and finally achieved creating a perfect pattern for my shape. Hard work, I can tell you!!!!

    I really like your top with the sleeves added. It looks so much better and the fabric is lovely.
