Tampa, Florida, ...
I got the BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook as a Christmas present last year and had my eyes on the blouse and the coat especially.
Inspired by the variations from other members on each project, I decided to try two new things I haven’t done before: chiffon and pintucks (front, center-back and on the sleeve cuffs)
I made a few changes to the original pattern:
- fusing the princess seams so I can have the front panel entirely for pintucks
- fusing the front and back yoke pieces into one large piece
- having the tie waist go all around instead of putting elastic in the back
The end result is very flattering and truly mine so I’m very happy. I wore it on our recent vacation to Lisbon, Portugal and love the photos. Btw if I look a bit chubby it’s not the blouse’s fault – I’m 4 months pregnant and this blouse actually works well as an early maternity shirt ;-)
