Joni Bell Sleeve Top

Added Feb 13, 2013

Melbourne, Austr...






This is my second project out of the BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern book.
I really loved the look of the bell sleeves on this top, very “hippy, bohemian” inspired.
I made it up in a black seersucker fabric. I added some gorgeous Italian buttons to the back which I think is a real feature of this blouse.

It was a simple pattern to modify however, I did note a typo on instruction number 5. Measure down 8.5mm from the waist point should read 8.5cm.

I’m really pleased with the blouse. I’ve already worn it a few times and it feels super comfy to wear.
