Blouse with Zipper

Added Jul 26, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I love this kind of cotton fabric and it’s easy to sew with. We called it “little Martine” and you can see the structure in the cotton after washing it, but of course you can iron it if you like too :) I like red details, so I chose to use the zipper, buttons and decoration (small zig-zag) with red thread. The pattern is from Burda 07/2008 and I think it’s nice with this short blouse together with my red skirt, which I have posted earlier with my tank top; www.burdastyle.com/projects/wrap-tank-with-embroidery

    Ellen, beautiful as always! I love the red zip with the skirt – classy and fun at the same time! I may have to shamelessly copy you!

    Beautiful blouse and the red details make it stand out. It’s a nice match with the red skirt but I thing it will be great with other colours too,

    i don’t know what it is, but you can always make a pattern that doesn’t make me look at it twice at first glance seem so desirable after you sew something from it! :D it’s your gift, i think. you have done a super great job with this one, i must say… you made it so much more fun with contrasting colours. i love it!!
