|Pattern Description: |
Women’s blouse This blouse has simple details that give it big impact. Folded yoke pieces are simply caught in the shoulder and sleeve attachment seams. They turn an otherwise simple blouse with V-neckline into a unique garment.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Normal scant BurdaStyle instructions, but its pretty straight forward.
The only thing I scratched my head about was the placement of the folded yoke - I don't think I noticed the placement lines for this folded yoke when tracing the pattern, so was stumped when trying to work out how it worked. Once I did it was easy. After sewing the darts, the yoke pieces are folded, wrong sides together, placed on the front with the curved part of the yoke following the curve of the armcye and then caught in place..
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
For a beginner you may dislike the instructions, but just love the style Burda offer and this is no exception
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut a 38, and then did my normal FBA, Sway back and broad back alterations
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again, and I think you could get quite inventive with the folded yoke. (I have a few ideas)
I lovely white blouse that won't really date too quickly and looks great for work or teamed with jeans.
