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.

Material Notes

Light fabric for the blouse – some kind of Burnout (chiffon).
Herring bone tweed for the skirt, viscose for the lining

    The blouse looks very luxurious and the colors are perfect! I like the pockets at the back too, a great detail which is visible to anybody!

      Thank you very much! To tell the true, when I was making it, I thought its colour is some mix of your both bowed blouses so I hoped you would like it;-)

      Thank you very much, yes it’s very pleasant for the body and the absence of buttons makes it comfortable:-)
