Burda Style 4/2014
Fabric: Blue Check Chambray from Denver Fabrics
Burda calls this "Loving Freedom." I love this blouse! The pattern pieces all lined up perfectly. I like how the pattern has numbers to match up to the seam placement. All instructions were precise and easy to follow. The only tricky part is laying on some of the pieces on the bias. I have done that with binding for quilts but not for apparel sewing. I had to stop and think about how to do that (asking my husband for help!).
There is elastic in the sleeve hem and a small piece of elastic that is used to sew the waist ties to. I added a button to the left front where the front yoke overlaps.
I'm so happy to have found this fabric. I wanted as close a match as possible to the Burda photo. I like how the check design changes with the pattern placement.
Thanks for stopping by ~ Shirley
