Plans to make the Front Pleat Blouse 07/12 were revised when I was gifted mega-metres of this silky yellow and black mystery fabric – it was perfect for the dress variation, and the dress variation became the perfect outfit for Oaks Day at Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival. I secured the pleat with a large black button brought in Buenos Aires a few years back. Add a few handmade pom-poms for headwear and some supersized black heels and I felt a million dollars without spending a cent!
I made size 40 and didn’t add seam allowance, in my never-ending bid to find my true BurdaStyle size. I liked the length just below the knee. My pleat-folding somehow made a double pleat, which I could probably never replicate, but which I rather liked. I didn’t bother with the button hole and snap, as the neck is wide enough to lift over my head, and instead just stitched through the thicknesses. Easy to sew and very easy to wear!
