I had a few pieces of material from my tunic dress and I made this blouse very easy.
I finished it in one day, I had to make a lot of changes becouse of burda sizes .At the begining I choosed the size 42, becouse I have 97 cm on my bust , I copied the pattern and after I measured it was too big for me and I choosed the size 38. After that I -ve cutted another 2 cm from every side and 3 cm from the back (1,5 cm for every piece) it was perfect!
The back is from 2 parts becouse I didn’t have enough material, but it was easier to make the V line from the back .
When I attached the sleeves, I realised that the neckline sleeves is too big , and I had to narrow with 3 cm, and after doing that, it looks better. I should have modified the sleeves but I didn’t know how !! :(
I attached the pictures of the pattern, the original size 38 with all modifications. The pattern was copied on baking paper :))
I am sorry if my english is not the best!
