My red Dotty Blouse

Added Aug 10, 2014

This is a loosely fitted blouse with interesting construction by Style Arc. The front is created from one piece of fabric which created illusion of tucked-in wrap top. I was so excited to work on it! Half of the blouse is hand-stitched: front tucks, back collas and cuffs. I sewed a size 8 and did not do any adjustments. Despite being loosely fitted, I did not experience any problems with armscyes (which often is an issue for me). I am very impressed how well Style Arc patterns are designed!

    Цікава блуза, або, як раніше казали, блузон. Дуже гарний колір – водночас і насичений, але не занадто яскравий. Тканина так гарно драпірується… Здається у Бурди щось подібне теж було в якомусь із холодних номерів. Я ще подумала, так цікаво, але обрати тканину буде не легко. Мені подобається. Таке щось м’яке і затишне, принаймні зовні :-)

      Дуже дякую :) Тепло шовку залишає таке приємне тепло на тiлi i тому дуже зручно в ній ходити. А схожа модель була у номерi за травень. Хоча вона трохи по iншому зконструйована.
