ELLA blouse

Added Oct 15, 2009

by lovelypolly

Vienna, Austria






i found this feminine fabric and thought it could be a nice blouse. as I am rather petite, i have to take care that I appear not too sweet, so I decided to use a more rough, more male pattern. it’s bwof 02/09 120A for a shirt – blouse with a polo collar.
I am yet not sure if I will ad buttons…

Material Notes

stretchy fabric, I would say its batiste and there are shiny flower stripes woven in.




Garment Type
Casual, Classic

    It looks like it was bought from store. You did a well job on it.

    My vote: no buttons! It is a great basic suit and atthough it is sexy – you know… without buttons it will be no longer a “more male pattern”. ;)

    really cute. man i’m so mad i haven’t subscribed to burda yet!!! the closed look is very adorable for the style of collar and puff sleeves, but you have the perfect neck/bust line to leave it without buttons and let it fall open. guess that doesn’t help you in deciding on buttons or not!!
