Flirty Tie Front

Added Jul 8, 2013

by Angie H

Stone Mountain, ...






Red and white dot flirty Big Bow blouse- My first Burda Style project completed. Tracing and Taping not as bad as I imagined. LOL.

I changed the sleeves to flutter sleeves. Kind of gives it a retro romantic vibe. Other than that, no changes.

Material Notes

Polyester crepe (I think)


Garment Type


118b Tie Front Blouse

    This is too cute. Love a blouse with a bow….and what you did with the sleeves! I’ve got to try my first Burda!

      I have a very short attention span and can’t get involved in sewing anything with too many pieces or steps right now…This one seemed perfect with only a few pieces and steps.

      Can’t wait to see your first project * I know it will be fabulous!

      Thanks Deanna,

      When I picked up this fabric …… I just knew that it had to be a tie front …I had picked up another pattern but when I ran across this pattern it just seemed perfect….

      Thanks Mel,
      I appreciate that. I was hoping that they would be a good match! :) This is definitely one of my new favorite pieces. Thats what makes sewing so awesome …… Every peice has the potential to be a favorite because we pick the style, fabric, and make it just how we want it! …

      Thank you kisses. The little red dots and the big bow were fun to wear and I like the way they are a little dramatic but not over the top.

    You’ ve been very busy:) This is lovely too! I love the big and small dots and the giant pussy bow, I also like the flared sleeves! I’ve made this pattern twice but never with this huge necktie, so it is still in my wish list:)

      Thanks Liliv,
      When researching this pattern, One thing that I liked was how good it looked with all the different fabrics, sleeve lengths, and different sized neckties.So many possibilities…….
      I really look forward to seeing your next version
