Sleeveless blouse - finished


I wanted a quick and easy project. This blouse is rated 1.5 dots, which on burda's rating scale, is fairly easy. What was I thinking? Actually, after I finally figured out what in the world they were doing with this tie (it only took me about 2 hours - I'm not kidding - to figure it out) then it was fairly easy. Oh, that and the fact that I made the opening on the RIGHT instead of the LEFT, so I had to keep switching that in my head when reading the directions. It took longer than I had thought, but I really like the results. If you want to make this top, you may want to check the armholes. They are a little small. Not enough that I'm going to rip them out and do it again, just a little tight.

Very pretty blouse, aren't BWOF instructions so frustrating at times? In the end, it is worth it for the great styles.

Nancy I really love your top, I've cut a muslin of this and found the instructions made no sense at all to me either so I haven't got very far with it. I admire your patience in spending 2 hours deciphering the instructions - I'm not sure I can manage that without going crazy!! - do you have any tips you can share to get us started?

I love it! I have this one already traced and I know I have enough fabric for it, maybe next week on winter vacation! I guess I'll have to go read the instructions a bit closer . . .

Too bad it took you 2 hours to figure it out, but it was worth every minute- it is beautiful!
This top looks so pretty on you!
