Equestrian Blouse

This is the tie front blouse featured in the October 2010 issue of Burda Magazine. I really love a bow tie front, but found this particular pattern to fit and tie a little oddly. Although I took about an inch from the tie width, I still thought the tie ended up looking too bulky. I also didn’t care for the way the front gathered at the neckline. It looked somewhat messy and as though I had to amend the neckline to fit the tie rather than it being a feature in the design. All in all, I still like this blouse and will most likely wear it fashioned as a tie scarf .

    I like the drape in the neck of the first photo. It gives an interesting, unstructured look. DIY sewing can all too often have that overly structured, obvious home-sewn look – I find this type of look refreshingly low-maintenance chic.

    I actually love that large bow tie! You always use the coolest vintage fabric for your projects and this one is no exception. :). Really cute blouse!
