I made this blouse based on the BurdaStyle pattern called Jennifer.
The pleats were very adventurous (I am not even sure, whether I made them right)…haha…and in the end I am a little disappointed, that they cannot really be seen because of the chosen flowery fabric. Nevertheless I like how it turned out. Classic, yet somehow romantic.
At first, it did not fit at all, but then I lengthened the pleats at the front and the back. Now it fits fine.
As I did not have enough fabric, I chose to turn this blouse into a short sleeve one.
