Pendrell and Kasia

Two blouses and one skirt that I made last week. I used Pendrell blouse pattern by Tasia from Sewaholic and Iove it so much that I made two in one day! The instructions are very clear and I only need a couple hours to make one blouse, from tracing the pattern pieces to finish.

The shape of the blouse and the way the sleeves drape are very lovely. The only alteration I made was shortening the bodice about 4 cm as I have a short bodice.

But I didn’t have anything to wear them with! I turned to Burdastyle and found this all-time favourite, the Kasia skirt. I shrunk the pattern by 92% and used size 38. I made it differently by moving the zipper to the back side of the skirt. The buttons are merely decorations and the front flap is sewed to the skirt. The skirt also has lining because the fabric looks like it is going to be itchy.

I also reinforced the waistband with rigilene boning for added stability. I used thin bias tape as casing for the boning and sewed them on the wrong side of the inside waistband. The boning makes the high waistband stay up and prevent them from rolling. I couldn’t eat too much while wearing this skirt, but I love the whole outfit!
