This is the BurdaStyle Gathered Blouse 07/2012 #116.
I lengthened this by 1 inch, used only one layer of fabric, changed the back closing to a button loop, used french seams throughout and used baby hems. I also increased the width of the bias binding to 1 1/4 inch as there was a lot of diagonal stretch with this fabric.
I made this two sizes smaller than the sizing suggested and it fit perfectly.
Fabric is a poly blend.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
