Here I show you my latest sewing project: a hearty blouse. A short sleeve summer blouse like this has been on my To-Do-list for so long. I was looking for a fabric with heart print for so long, but I didn’t like most fabrics as they mostly look like children- or decoration fabric. Finally I’m happy with this one with abstract hearts. The blouse is based on pattern No. 105 B from Burda 03/2014. It’s an overhead blouse with a slit in the front instead of buttons. I like the waist-length, although you have to choose high waisted pants or skirt, the blouse is cut wide and slightly shorter in the front. For me, the slit at the neckline was way too long, I shortened this about 4 cm and it’s still very open. Again, my selfmade leather triple bow tie (already shown here) matches very well, it’s adjustable and can be adapted to this wide collar.
