for the blouse
i used burda pattern (8/2009, mod 117)
but crated two ruffles on each side, instead of one
and i made them in different colors
i first tried hemming ruffles on my serger
but wasn’t really satisfied with how it looked
and how it draped
so i cut that hem off
and then used flame of the candle
to sort of melt ends of the ruffle
and seal them
i also made this skirt
i’ve made it a long time ago
and posted it on burdastyle
but if anyone is interested
pattern is from the same issue
of burda magazine as the blouse, mod. 128
(it’s a dress pattern actually)
see more pics on my blog
chiffon (not of the silk kind) 1m in blue color, and scrap in black color
hook and eye closure in front
