What can I say, this was a successful project. I’ve had problems in the past completing Burda Style patterns. It could be that I’m getting the hang of understanding their instructions or I’m just getting better at sewing. Whatever the reason I’m really happy with the results.
With all burda patterns, coping, drafting, tracing, however you want to call it, it’s a pain and I wish they would insert a workaround. Since that won’t be in the near future, I’ve decided to suck it up and get with the program.
This is a fantastic little blouse and I would make her again, but I would take the neckline up a bit. I don’t really have much to fill the upper department with and it’s a tad too revealing for me :). Also if your not familiar with sewing unique details, the twist in the shoulders may confuse you (only for a moment though).
