Perfect Summer Blouse

Added Jul 19, 2012

by onehundredsocks

Groningen, Nethe...






‘Perfect’ meaning in this sense, that this is the best thing I have ever made! I went out of my way to follow the instructions (although the placket instructions did not make any sense to me) and to give it a nice finish. It’s Burda pattern 7/2012 132, a perfect shirt for summer!

    looks like the perfect fabric for a summer blouse. and I think it doesnt matter where you read placket instructuions…they pretty much never make sense! getting someone who knows how to show you makes a world of difference~!

      Well, Peter from Male Pattern Boldness actually has a great post about it in his Mens Shirt Sewalong! I really recommend this one if you want to understand how plackets work.
