Helloo Yellow

I love this color! It’s so obnoxiously cheery! For this blouse I used the BurdaStyle pattern 09/2012 #118 in a medium weight cotton jersey fabric. And, because I am terrified of making button-holes, I used snaps instead of buttons for the closures.

Material Notes

Cotton jersey in day-glo yellow (love it!).

    I love it!!! I’ve been admiring it in the magazone and wondering if it’s as fabulous in real life – and it is!!!! I;m green with envy and putting on the top of my to-do list right now. Congrats on a gorgeous blouse.

      Thanks! No, I couldn’t possibly be that fast! It was in the September issue of BurdaStyle magazine, but I only got around to it a couple weeks ago :-)
