Pattern: Burda 02/2009
The exclusive design from Tristano Onofri
Fabric: sheer cotton/poly
This is a sheer paisley fabric, so I underlined the front wrapped pieces with the same fabric.
The blouse has a side invisible zipper and a false ribbon bow.
The back neckline and the sleeves’ hem are gathered by sewing with elastic thread in the lower bobbin, using a longer stitch step (4mm). Sew two double parallel lines with the elastic about 5mm apart, then pull on the elastic ends to achieve the desired gathering length and securely tie the elastic and the thread in a few knots.
I like to wear this with an embroidered cami underneath, not only because of the sheerness of the fabric, but also because the wrap is very revealing especially when I move…I love the look of wrap blouses and dresses, but one would need to really fill them so they would stay close to the body…me…I get a cami.
