Pattern: BurdaStyle Round Neck Blouse
Description: This fashionable blouse is easy to sew and falls semi-loosely to the hips.
Fabric used: Polyester/Rayon and ribbing.
This blouse was definitely easy to sew and took about an hour to complete. I printed out the pattern and made the full length blouse. After fitting it I realised that the sleeves and bottom were both a little long. Therefore, I cut about 10cm off both and attached the ribbing. It’s a very cute, loose fitting blouse that you can wear comfortably with jeans.
If you’re new to sewing the BurdaStyle pattern and instructions might be a bit confusing. There was a piece #5 that even I had no idea how and where to fit into the design (I ignored that part). It’s a very basic pattern but the instructions certainly let it down. If you’re confident with construction however, you won’t have any issues.
I purchased this fabric from Mood Fabrics in New York last year so I was excited to finally put it to good use!
This pattern works amazing in soft and or see/through fabrics so I recommend trying a few different versions. This is the perfect shirt for the cooler weather, especially in Queensland where it doesn’t actually get that cold!
I highly recommend this pattern for a fun, quick wardrobe filler.
