The New Year Blouse

My eighth and final garment for my winter wardrobe challenge. This is the blouse pattern from the BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook. I eliminated the princess seams from the front and gathered at the shoulder. I also removed the front slit from the neckline. I didn’t put in a zipper but made the entire waistband elastic. This is my second go at this pattern and I love it. I will definitely be making more versions! You can read more about this project at my blog.

Material Notes

1 1/3 yards of silk cotton fabric, 1/4" elastic
