Double layer asymmetric white blouse

Added Apr 17, 2014

This is my version of BurdaStyle’s gorgeous and so chic white blouse. I was in love with this pattern the moment I saw it, but my fabric was too thin to stand up to it. So, I made the whole thing double layered – which eliminated the need for facings or hems! Deets on the blog. One of my fav makes.

    I love the way you did this blouse! Have to make it just to see how it would look with a pair of ripped trousers. I think it is cool enough for that ;-)
