Just like everyone else in the sewing community, my heart skipped a beat when I saw this wrapped blouse pattern. I had some blue cupro satin in my stash. Normally I would go for fabric with a bit more body, but I decided to test the pattern with this fabric. I broadened the shoulders a bit, since that’s the part that’s always a bit too narrow for me with Burda patterns. I also lengthened the hem with 5 cm. I’m tall (1.80 m), so perhaps that’s not necessary when you have a ‘normal’ length ;-)
