A simple silk blouse with a nice bow made from a pleasant fabric with nice print. The pattern is really simple: it took me half a day to make the blouse so it is ideal for those who have no much time for sewing but eagerly want to refresh a wardrobe:-) I shortened the slit of the cut-out to 12 cm and made the wider tie: just used all the fabric left after cuttung the bodice and sleeves – so I got 12 cm of ready width for it.
The skirt isn’t new – from Burda 8/2003, # 108 but the fabric and the pattern make it universal and well-matching other clothes. Besides the colour and fabric, my favourite part is the pockets on the back ( the detail about which I can say, “I don’t care anybody can’t see it, I KNOW it is there”. :-)) I also made a pleat instead of the front slit.
Light fabric for the blouse – some kind of Burnout (chiffon).
Herring bone tweed for the skirt, viscose for the lining
