Description

I saw this pattern in Burda style magazine – the 08/2013 issues.

It is called a “statement blouse” and the full length, bouffant sleeves are reminiscent of the seventies.

IN the right colour, it can make the perfect business blouse.

For this project I chose good quality (heavy) crepe in pastel blue.

Pearl buttons for cuffs.

      Thank you. However, I find the sleeves unusually puffy!!

      It is an unusually heavy crepe. From local fabric store.

      I enjoyed making this. The sleeves feel a bit too full… However they are supposed to be like that
