Description

I had some lovely printed slinky jersey hanging around in my stash just waiting to be transformed. The time was ripe when I saw BurdaStyle 11/2010 Wrapover blouse 110! Sewing the slinky jersey was a bit of a challenge and I had to add some stretch interfacing onto the waistband and shoulders so they didn’t stretch so much. Also, I stay stitched everything. I love how it turned out and it’s so comfy and still stylish. Pair it with skinny jeans because it is quite blousey.
