Burda World of Fashion 10-10-118
This blouse is a second version of the Burda blouse I made her for day 1, much quicker as all the fitting adjustments had been completed already. This time I have actually used the neck detail as set out by Burda, and it is worth the fabric hogging, in my opinion. The neck is bound with a bias strip, fastened with a small button and loop, and a bias cut scarf is then attached to the neckline. In Burda, this blouse is made from a wool tweed, and the bias scarf is fringed at the ends and the long sides are unfinished. As my daughter's blouse is made from cotton shirting (woven plaid in black,grey and white, so both sides look good) from Michael's Fabrics, I have finished the edges of the scarf with a rolled hem. The scarf is a single layer, and drapes beautifully.
Photographs are again taken during the lunch break, and the cotton is standing up pretty well to a half day at work.
Today, she wore the blouse again ( I think it is her favourite), but untucked, over her black RTW (Christmas present from Nanna) skirt.
These are after work photos, with the shoes off and hair out, but I think you can see the idea of the second outfit from this blouse with a different look.
