I loved this combination of blouse and capri when I saw it in the Burdastyle April 2013 issue. It’s #119 for the blouse and #113 for the capris. I didn’t add the piping but I’m okay with that. Again, I chose the eyelet with little flowers for the blouse as you can see. The pants are made of a nice denim with spandex blend so it has a nice stretch. I cut a size 36 but in the end I should have cut a size 34 for the capris since I altered it to be fitted more in the legs and I took an inch off the hems as well so it had a slightly more flattering cut at the knee.
1.5 yards of eyelt, 2 5/8 inch buttons, interfacing, 1.5 yards of denim spandex, 9 inch zipper, thread
