Sweet Fuchsia Blouse

Added Dec 10, 2009

Seattle, Washing...






Roommate: What are you making?
Me: A top
Roommate: Oh, it’s see through. So its a slut top.
Me: No…


Actually I think it turned out very pretty! Looks really good with a high waisted skirt.

This pattern was fairly easy and I think would be easy to make variations of. I originally wanted to make the sleeves and collar bigger but I got a little absent minded and scissor happy.

Material Notes

Pink stuff from thrift store. Pain in the butt to sew with.

    Hey so did you use stabilizer to make this top??? I’m wondering if it’s “safe” to attempt without?

    Now just tell your roommate that there are quite a few women on burdastyle who think your slut top is awesome. And in no way slutty. So there. ;)

    You did a fab job on this.

    Frikkin’ cute top! Your flatmate is probably super jealous now and plotting ways to sneak it out of your wardrobe without you noticing! What other variations do you have in mind?

    Hey GREAT job on this top! I’ve just cut out my “slut top” too – but am so baffled by the instructions. Going to have to workshop it at my fortnightly “stitch and bitch” session with the girls. Can i quiz you on making it? The patter says to cut 4 of the sleeves – it doesn’t look like your sleeves are double fabric? Also, is the “placket” the casing for the drawstring around the neck? Sorry to be pain!

      Oh yeah, I originally did the armholes with the interfacing but it looked really bad because they weren’t sheer anymore. Placket…. hmmm I don’t remember. There is one rectangle for the neckline tunnel and one for the sleeves, which I didn’t 100 % understand so I just said screw it because every little mistake was showing up on that damn fabric. You might have an easier time if yours isn’t sheer.
