Pleated Blouse and Shorts

Life is good ;-) For the blouse I’ve used viscose/cotton fabric and it’s softly draping so I think it was nice for the pattern. The shorts is made of cotton which is very soft to touch. The pockets are just for decoration.

Material Notes

Viscose and cotton.

    It seems to me I missed the issue because I see so nice things made by you and saw none of them while looking through the magazine:-)) Great outfit, girlish and informal.

      Thanks a lot Rita! I think the blouse would be great together with a pair of white jeans as well :)

    I admire your capability to use burda patterns, which I didn’t notice to create clothes, which is so noticeable ) Nice outfit, suits you well and you look wonderful with it!

    Love the top, very unique pleating, looks cool! Nice pair of shorts although I’m too lazy to try fitting new shorts patterns and mostly use the same one ;-)
