Piped Ute Variation A

Added Jun 6, 2009

Vienna, Austria






I found this really funky cotton print during my last visit in New York. It is perfect for this blouse.
I also piped the collar, the buttoned front part and the sleeve hems. This was my first time piping and it turned out to be less difficult than I thought.
Unfortunately the blouse has a gaping neckline, which I can’t fix anymore so I feel more comfortable wearing something underneath it.

Material Notes

Cotton Print and brown piping




Garment Type
Business, Casual, Classic

      Thanks! I don’t know how much fabric I used. I made this blouse long ago, so I don’t remember. But I usually find, that I use less farbic than they tell you in the pattern instructions. I usually cut out all my pattern pieces first and then lay them out to see how much fabric I’ll need.

    I really love this blouse, especially the piping on the sleeve hems. Great idea.

    Yeah, I just finished making the Ute with this collar option, and I find that it feels very big…something about all that interfacing makes it stand out from my body a bit and I feel like I’m not wearing anything on top. The shirt doesn’t look terribly revealing on you, though.. it looks great!
