Description

For part 2 of my Vintage Modern Design Challenge entry, I started with the free Indygo Junction Pattern Called “Sateen Blouse” but used a sustainable knit. (I needed something more forgiving for my current shifting size, as I am 32 weeks pregnant, and I try to use eco-friendly fabrics whenever I can.) I also decided to make it reversible with a patterned woven cuff! I loved this project and will definitely make it again. When I’m not pregnant, I would like to make the blouse into a tunic or even a dress – it’d be so cute on the beach over a bikini. I love the other BurdaStyle Member that did that lace back too – beautiful idea!

Good luck everyone!

    I really like the contrasting fabric on the cuffs.
