Lillian Blouse. ex BurdaStyle Vintage Modern

Lillian blouse – looks easy I thought. A bit of time required to draft variation but instructions are quite straightforward – however, wait unit you construct the back and front blouse before making the measurement for the collar pattern – as this needs to be taken off the garment and NOT the pattern pieces.
It may also pay to make the back a bit longer, I find mine a bit on the short side but still ok (no room to tuck in).

Material Notes

Recommended fabrics were for softer fabrics – but I used a cotton poplin and broderie anglaise lace insert and this seemed to work just fine.

    been walking yesterday, and i saw a girl wearing similar shirt, with that curved line yoke in front and back, and i told myself – you need to make that! love your version, great job :)

      I only have a curved yoke in the front as does the variation of the pattern – but nothing to stop you from doing whatever form you please

    This blouse looks so romantic. What Burda is it from, can you tell me?

      It is from the Burdastyle Book “Modern Vintage” It is not from a magazine.
