All done! Photographing projects in this weather is not easy! I waited for daughter No2 to come home from school to do pics, but it was way to dark by then. We did take some photos indoors, but the lighting isn’t that good. So back outside this morning, in the rain! Grrr. How do some of you bloggers manage to get such good shots indoors? Anyways, without further ado, here’s my take on Burda’s pattern #108 from 11/2012.
This fabric is devine to wear! The only thing I’d change when I do this pattern again, and I will make another, is to cut the necktie/band on the straight. Especially if the fabric has as much movement as this viscose! Despite putting it on twice, the one side has twisted, which is most annoying! If I had cut it on the straight grain instead, that wouldn’t have happened.
With the addition of darts at the back, the blouse fits much better. And now there’s plenty of fullness in the sleeve too!
Fuzzy again, but at least I’m kinda smiling! I love that fabric!! I wonder if it came in other colourways – and where I can get my hands on some…
Grim concentration to make sure no shaky hands! hehe Self portraits aren’t easy.
Janene over at Ooobop! has posted a review of December’s Burda, so I guess I have more to make!!

It looks beautiful! You can’t really tell that the necktie / band has twisted unless you look really really hard – definite win!
Thanks! It’s so annoying that it happened in only one place! I did try my best to fix it, but it wasn’t having it. I am definitely making another though, so watch this space!
I love this on you- that is great stash fabric, much envy!
Thanks! I just hope I still have enough left to make Daughter No1 a dress…. that was the original plan. :s
What a beautiful fabric and it’s perfect for that blouse.
Thank you, it feels fabulous on!
Gorgeous shirt, I have this fabric too and it was so slippery under the needle! I got mine from a fabric shop in Rotherham, and I don’t recall it coming in any other colours (which is a shame!)
Yeah, moves like silk, doesn’t it? But simply fabulous to wear! 😀
Oh I am so with you on that fabric. It looks amazing. Lovely sleeves especially. I kept thinking you had a glass of bubbly in your hand instead of a camera…. wouldn’t look out of place. Dead classy! 🙂
Oooh, now you’re talking! A glass of something would have been just the ticket! 😀
Wow this looks fantastic – I couldn’t agree more with the other comments and I can’t see any tie twisting without peering creepily close lol.
lol, I might take a close-up pic, or I may just pretend it was a design feature… 😉
Go with design feature and don’t tell anyone! lol
You make beautiful blouses that are perfect for you.
Thank you Gail!
