New shirt, old pattern

Added Mar 16, 2009

Belgrade, Serbia






The BWOF 1/2008, #108 pattern, with altered sleeves.

I just love this pattern, I believe I made around 15 blouses using it – each time I make a small alteration on the original pattern, to get a different look.

Material Notes

100% cotton that cost me around $3




Garment Type

    Fabulous of course! I love how you manipulated the stripes to work with the cut of the blouse, creating neat contrast sections.

    Wow! Your shirt is so sleek and chic! I adore your use of fabric design in the bib area! Beautiful work….. You look like one of my favorite all-time models, 60’s fashion iconic model/ singer Francoise Hardy, but more enchanting!

    sewella: da, pruge su u bojama siva, bela, i lila Mirela: I didn’t alter the fit, but I traced the pattern one size smaller than I normally use (I am size 38, but used the size 36). I sewed blouses for my friends and mom using this pattern, and always used a pattern one size smaller than the measurements said. That worked just fine.

    Beautiful! Did you alter the fit at all? I really like this in stripes, it is on my to do list, just waiting to find the matching fabric.

    Love how you used the fabric – the stripes angled against each other.

    Prelepa je! I boje su divne! (Dali je to lila i siva?) Bas sam sad ubrzo prelistavala taj broj Burde i htela bih da uradim neke od kosulje (u tom broju so skoro sve bele!) medu kojima i ova tvoja.
