San Jose, Califo...
I had been recently obsessed with tie-front blouses, not sure if its because I had been watching Mad Men, or its the many tie-blouses I had been drooling after on burdastyle. However, I had no idea how they attach that tie to the neck line so nicely! So I got a Ute pattern from Burdastyle, and I made this.
I made almost no alteration except that I used sleeves from JJ and shortened the tie part. The scarf part is made from silk chiffon and the rest is made from some kind of silk with seashell weaving on it. I printed out the UTE pattern at 91% as usual so that I dont have to adjust the pattern for height, and the blouse came out fitting perfectly.
