No, I did not recently complete this top. But when I wore it Sunday, I realized I never shared it with all of you because I wasn’t blogging when I made it. And it is too nice of a pattern to keep all to myself! The blouse has somewhat puffy sleeves with a sleeve band that includes a functional button, it has a collar and it buttons up the front. Princess seams add shaping detail so it is not a boxy fit.
Burda’s fabric suggestions are for light weight shirting. I used a great batiste fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics. If you are interested in this pattern, I posted a review of it on Pattern Review way back in 2009 when I made it. So if you have the February 2009 Burda World of Fashion magazine in your archives and decide to make this blouse, I would love to see your version. I just might make another one in the upcoming months.
