Nice blouse from Burda’s August 2009 magazine, it isn’t available online yet, but I’d recommend it! It was part of their Parisian pattern collection which had other really nice patterns. The ruffle is bigger in person, at first I was a little worried it was too big, but then I stopped being self-conscious about it! The hardest part was hemming the ruffle, it is a little messy but you can’t really tell if you sew it with the same color thread. It was fun to sew, Burda sizing is pretty accurate so I didn’t have to make changes to the pattern. I think difficulty is intermediate or advanced beginner, just because silk is trickier to work with so dealing with shifty fabric wouldn’t be that fun for a novice.
Silk crepe de chine – nice because it is not sheer!
