Description

Hi!! I’m in a mustard mood lately and this is my new mustard blouse. It’s the third time I use this pattern but I didn’t manage to make the bow as pretty as I would like. If the fabric had more body the result would be better I think. Anyway I like it because of the color and I hope you like it too!!
The curdoroy skirt is the one I posted “here”: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/purple-and-chocolate, the other one is an old one.

    I love the colour, the fit, the elasticated sleeves and I especially like it tucked it – so cute (and I think the bow looks good too)

    I love your blouse, it looks great. I so feel like copycat, and I will, for sure, go out to look for similar fabric and try it on my own. You are great inspiration! :)

    Today in the morning I was looking through the magazines to choose a bowed blouse. And when I saw this one, I thought probably I’m the only one who hasn’t had such a blouse and maybe I have to think of making it. So I’m glad to see it on you but with the question why you don’t like the bow – as for me it looks as it has to if was cut bias. I like the fabric you use: the colour suits you well and it looks soft and well-draping. I guess such blouses sewed of right fabric ( and yours is right!) make women look fragile and delicate.

      Thank you very much for the kind comments!! I like my blouse but the bow hasn’t the body of other versions. I like very much the huge bow of some versions I’ ve seen here but it is a little bit exaggarating for everyday use. My tie is cut on the bias but much more narrow than the pattern suggests. It is a little flowy, it hasn’t any body. But all in all I like it either way:))))

      as for me, such bows look and keep their shape much better if they cut across the fabric especially if the fabric is thin: in this case they are stretching more so seem to be narrower than they really are. But your blouse is really nice with its bow.

      Oh yes!! of course you are right! It was the first time I cut such a tie on the bias and didn’t like the effect in this thin drapey fabric and the narrow tie. If the fabric was heavier or less flowy or maybe if the tie was more wide it would be better. You are a very experienced sewer my friend, you know almost everything:)) Next time I will bother you with some questions:)) Anyway now this is done, it’s ok. Next time I will be wiser!! Thanks for the precious advice!!!

      Oh, sorry Liliv, I think I’ve just messed up your wall, didn’t realise I posted twice, so I deleted the other message and now I think I clicked on something I shouldn’t have, sorry. Why is it saying inappropriate?? So sorry, I should have had my coffee first before posting lol!!
