This is my blouse that got published in the Burda Style Sewing Handbook. The fabric is gorgeous silk chiffon with polka dots in satin wave.
The alterations I did on the pattern were minor: instead of front princess seam, I made waist darts and added two tiny pleats at the shoulder seam. I cropped the bodice and the peplum a bit. Also, I shortened the sleeves, making them slightly puffed. I narrowed down the blouse a bit, to make it more form fitting.
The blouse has an invisible zipper sewed into the side seam.
After making the blouse, I was left with enough remnants to make the matching skirt. Now I have this gorgeous ensemble that looks like a dress.
