This blouse is no. 107 from Burdastyle magazine 1/2010. I made it in a wool microfiber blend instead of chiffon and that wasn’t any problem. The pattern has long, wide, puffy sleeves in the original, and they just didn’t suit me, so I ripped them out, altered the sleeve pattern to have it narrower and without ruffles at the shoulder, and cut the sleeves again. Now I like it much better, but it took me some time to do the alteration! Unfortunately, it has become spring in the meantime and the blouse is too warm now!
What I especially like at this pattern is the closure with the snaps at the left shoulder.
