Growing in sewing

The Once in a Lifetime Blouse

This blouse took me a few weeks (maybe even a month) to finish. I could probably have finished it on a weekend if I would have persevered. I made it from this Burda pattern in a lovely chambray fabric, it was in last months European Burda Style. The problem was mostly with the collar/V-neck part. I had a really hard time understanding the instructions, it might have something to do with the translation from German to Swedish. Luckily my Mom was coming to visit anyway so I got her expertise which helped a lot. After all the hard work I had put in I was just a bit disappointed when I finally put on the finished garment. I don’t know what I was expecting… maybe I was secretly wishing for a choir to come in and sing “Hallelujah”. Well, that didn’t happen, but I know have a blouse I can proudly say I made (if anyone ever asks).Processed with Moldiv

I love to be creative, especially to sew, finding new patterns and fabrics is always rewarding and fun. I've grown up with the craft, my mother is a quilt-shop owner and her love for sewing has rubbed off on me.

  1. You did a great job! The instructions were not very good so I understand that it was hard. You now have a very nice blouse with lots of details that you made yourself, be proud!!
