Burda 10/2008 Blouse 118


 We are back to having to take pictures indoors since I won't brave 40 deg weather to photograph a silk blouse. I need to do some research in how to take better indoor shots.

Anyways, this is my first silk blouse. I have been terrified of tackling slippery fabrics and while it will take me a while to recover, I'm so glad I made it!


 I think this blouse looks much better in person, between the indoor lighting and the fact that black is so hard to photograph, I struggled to get some good pictures.

I used covered buttons, it seems like the right thing to do with this kind of garment. As well as doing French seams, quoting Trena "it's the right thing to do with silk". I serged the first pass and then enclosed the serged edge. Thanks Trena!
 The fabric came from Metro Textiles, NYC a few years ago.
I don't know what I'm making next. There are so many things I would like to make that I can't decide what to work on first.

  1. Desde luego es una blusa preciosa que junto a los pantalones y las botas de motera le dan un toque rebelde que me encanta.
