Several months ago I found this green fabric at The Fabric Store in Brisbane and thought this would be great for a blouse to wear to a St Patrick’s Day party I attend each year with my Irish relatives. I used Burda pattern #128, 9/2011. It was very easy to construct and as it was quite long in length, I decided to add vents in the side seams in case I wanted to wear it out over my pants. It was a very hot and humid night and this blouse was very cool and comfortable to wear. I am very happy with it and will make this pattern again and have a request from my daughter for one as well.
