White as Snow

I bought a whole lot of old burdastyle magazines and found this wonderful pattern with a “parisan” feel to it.
My biggest problem is that i don’t understand the help given to the pattern. I have no idea what half of the words are, so I usually en up with something half made or half made up. This is a guess all the way. The part i understood was "Sew the shoulder-, and side sections together ".

But I managed to put something together anyway.

    this is very pretty ! I’m working on the version with sleeves at the moment. You’ve really done the ruffle very well.

      Thanks! The one with sleeves is lovely as well! I’m just so bad with them I bailed out and went with the one without them;)

    Very beautiful! This top is on my to do list ever since the mag came out. Now that I’ve seen yours, I definitely want to make it in white!

    I made it in color as well but I think your simple white is much more beautiful. I think I’ll do it again and copy! :) Great job anyway!

    Good for you! It must be tough trying to figure out sewing terms in another language. The blouse is lovely and looks great on you!

      Thank you so much! And it’s so soft, you just want to touch it all the time! (That doesn’t look good though… Haha!)

    Nice job! Love the soft ruffled front.

    I can totally understand what you went through while sewing with instructions in another language- I often buy and sew from Japanese sewing books (pochee, etc…). Even with a page of translation of the typical sewing words in kanji, I have to rely on my sewing knowledge and gut and just wing it!

      The worst part is that everything was in Swedish! I think I would have had a greater understanding if it was in english, i’ve lerned more terms inenglish than in swedish! haha!

      Thank you
