A Different Arrangement

♫ ♪ A Different Arrangement

By now you may have noticed that I like to use basic patterns and make things a bit different.. This time I played with a shirt pattern #135 from Burda 02/2013.. It’s a pattern for a very simple bow shirt.. What I liked with this pattern is the construction of sleeves.. There are darts on sleeve cap and (in my opinion) it’s easier to sew them to armscye.. Here you can see my first two versions of this top..

The first is made from rayon, red with brownish stripes.. Instead of sewing the bow, I drafted a collar.. For the second top I used gray lightweight cotton.. I liked how my birthday dress looked with the pleats, so I did the same thing here..

Blogged here ..

This time my favorite sister Dina is in front of the camera ;)

    Fantastic blouses. I have this pattern and you’ve made me see it in a totally new light! Especially love the grey one.
