Criss Cross Blouse

I love to try new patterns and this was not an exception… Colors makes me in a Goooood mood, so when I found this stretchy fabric I couldn’t resist buying it :) The fun part with this blouse is the pleats in front and the cross over in the middle. I’m happy how it turned out and it was nice together with my Linen Jacket as well.

    On some reason I had some doubts as for the pattern… I wasn’t sure the pleats would fit well and am very glad I was mistaken:-). You made a great job, your variant is better than in the magazine.

    You seem to have used knit fabric. Did you size the top down? Any problem with the construction? I am planning to make it too.

      I didn’t size it down, but iron vlies tape as suggested in the instruction. I used a zipper at the back, but maybe this is not necessary if you use stretch fabric. I’m sure you will manage. Happy sewing ;-)
