Silk wrap blouse

In the September issue of burdastyle magazine they feature a wrap blouse which is done with a jersey and with a batiste. Both have very vivid and colorful pattern, which we didn’t liked at all. We thought of something more calm, but when my buddy’s wife came with a beautiful yellow dupion silk, we were a bit skeptical, if this wouldn’t be too calm.
… but I think it turned out perfectly well.

I worked primarily alone, almost without the help of my buddy, as you can see in the pictures of my blog. I differed in one point from the original. I made the buttons two-sided, meaning that I put the presentable ones on the outside of BOTH front pieces and plain ones on the inside, thus it is possible to wrap it to left side and also to the right side. (For a woman, sometimes indecisive given a full wardrobe, I thought that would be a nice option.) The shawl collar can be worn straightened up or folded and you can decide on how much skin you want to show in the neckline.

    Beautiful! I think the blouse looks really nice in a fabric with shine and a little structure instead of a busy print.
