Tie front gathered plaid blouse

Athens, Greece






This is based on model 101 from Burda magazine 7/2007 (The last photo shows the technical drawing). I looove to use old and forgotten burdamagazine issues!! As always the burda neckline is low …. ok! it’s sexy! I added a bow tie to fill the bust and make it more modest, it’s better but still not a proper blouse to go to my work

      It’s a relatively easy shirt as it doesn’t have buttons. It would have been a little more difficult If i had made it as shown in the magazine drawing (with the drawstring and the band collar, as shown at the last picture). Mine was easier;)
      Thanks a lot for commenting!

    I always liked this blouse ( and still going to make it, too) and your variant is very successful, the print is winsome! P.S. Agree as for about burda’s sexy necklines :)) and old issues, I have a big collection and use them not depending on years of publishing, too.

    Super cute! The plaids are great. The pattern looks like it would work well on so may other types of fabric too. Too bad we can’t get the pattern anymore.

      Thanks, I’m very glad you like it!!
      Yes you are right, it’ s a versatile pattern. If you ever find it consider that the sleeves are tight.
      It really works with many fabrics. I also made it with a plain green fabric, gathered short sleeves and a more closed opening. I plan to sew it again one more time with a peter pan collar to update it.
