My first blouse! I opened the armholes an additional 1.5" and made the belt double length (per oona!) and tapered the ends.

Material Notes

Flowery cotton





Burda, me and oonaballoona:)

    it’s wonderful: this is the second time i see the “sweet desira” on this gallery (the other is of Secretsugar) but where did you find this beautyful pattern? Congratulation the patter with fabric is very chic!
