A Shirt-blouse

The plan was to sew this blouse. But, as usual, I did not have enough fabric. So, another option was the blouse that I made two years ago. ( Burda-9-2007) The pattern is basic, easy to sew, and I think trendy this year again.
Then I used satin and I haven't made any change.
This time I used georgette.
I made some modifications to the sleeves. Elastic at the wrists-Burda propose, was not a good solution for me. In this version I used elastic thread - 5 lines-I think this is much better.
No, I will not sew this blouse again.
Two times was enough for this pattern.
Since earrings are my passion, I made a matching pair. They look much better at the day light.
Just for the record: I have a "real" jewelry but I wear only bijouterie and jewelry I made. Don't know why.

Beautiful blouse and earrings! What talent you have! I love the way you did the cuffs as well. It looks comfortable as well as lovely.

That's a gorgeous blouse! Love what you did, shirring the sleeve hemline.

Beautiful blouse. The way you finished the sleeves looks much nicer than just using elastic at the bottom. The fabric is also gorgeous. Makes me think of pearl necklaces.

Gorgeous blouse. I love the fabric - it seems to give the blouse some extra "movement"

This is sick! Even your tops are the patterns I keep meaning to make but haven't got around to yet!

Sorry for the plethora of comments but I'm just going through your archives and having the same experience every couple of posts!

I need to update my blogroll.
