A long waited project:-) The shirt / blouse / light blazer #108 from old Burda issue 1/2009. I’ve planned to make it since bought the magazine so am very glad it happened at last :-) The blouse made up a suit with these my shorts made two years ago.
The sewing wasn’t much trouble despite stripy fabric and pockets with flaps. Thanking to the grey colour the blouse is paired well with whatever.
As for the modifications, I made a short sleeve because am going to wear it in summer and had no enough fabric for the long ones anyway. My tips for sewing and the technique to making false turned up cuff is here

All the jewellry was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Blend of cotton, linen and viscose, perfect choice for summer to make a suit which is possible to wear even to work (although I wear to work almost everything I make:-))

      It is the same here with the project update. And I am glad I am not alone because I’ve already started thinking something happened to my access again.

      Thank you, dear Liliv, for the compliment :-) I guess I just found my comfort style and whatever I make, it gets those features without my help:-) But on the other hand, I don’t take much risk to change my way to dress although admire a lot of things made by the girls here.
