These two blouses are my second and third version of Burdastyle pleated blouse 04/2013 size 36 but I made a new variation. I inserted an elastic on hemline – by sew the hem allowance 1.5 cm and leave 3 cm open to insert the elastic. I used 1 cm wide elastic x 78 cm long ( my waist measurement). Then I inserted the elastic inside the hemline, tight it in the end and sew the opening area.
For the fabrics, I used printed viscose in yellow with small flowers for the old blouse and silk polyester in fuchsia for the new blouse.
