BWOF 10/2004, #116 pattern.
My brother’s girlfriend gave me a bunch of fabrics last month as she found them useless (she doesn’t sew), and she didn’t like them. Well, I loved them :). This pale yellow – golden satin caught my eye instantly. I had just enough for a short sleeves blouse. Buttons I used were given to me by my aunt, and the golden lace is a leftover from the previous project I had worked on.
I altered the original pattern by adding front darts, to accentuate my waist more, and I had to narrow the blouse a lot (my standard problem with BWOF blouse patterns) on the side seams and I added a back dart (I narrowed the blouse by 10cm in the waist area!). Finally, I shortened the blouse by 6cm, since it was too long. I really like the result.
