Floral blouse with bow tie

Added Mar 5, 2013

Athens, Greece






Blouse based on pattern 118 from burda magazine 10/2010. I wanted to wear the blouse during all winter so I made long sleeves (though the short ones look cuter). I also added elastic at the bottom of the sleeves. I made the front-tie long enough but narrower than the pattern suggests. I also cut it on grain and not on the bias…these changes resulted in a not so impressive bow, but its ok because:
1. the bow gets anyway lost in this busy print
2. I wanted a more simple blouse to wear everyday at work and
3. I wanted to use the rest of this lovely fabric for a little summer dress
I will make this pattern again with a plain fabric and a giant bow tie cut on the bias!!! Next time I will also put darts at least at the back bodice because the blouse is boxy.
Thanks for looking!!!!
