Sewing Burda: Two tone Wrap Blouse

Wrap bouse - cover

         Sewing is fun! As soon as it stops being fun you should as yourself “why am I doing this?”. So far, I don’t need to ask myself anything – I am having a lot of fun. More and more with every new outfit sewn. Recently I put together my sewing “to do list” and set myself a deadline to complete 5 garments by Sept 30th! Well, I should say I am on the right track, since my first and favorite piece is already sewn and ready to wear – WRAP BLOUSE!

My sewing to do list

Pattern: Burda style 04/2014 wrap blouse

Fabric: dull satin and crepe back satin

New techniques: envelope folding, sleeve sewing (funny enough, but I have never sewn long sleeves before this)

      I love this pattern, in fact I already made another semi-sheer wrap blouse, that would be best to wear as an evening piece. I admit, this blouse might be a little boxy, but it really depends on your body complexion. It sits a little stiff on me, but I like it. The design really compensates for that, plus it is a little shorter than usually a blouse would be. Plus, I chose to play around with different colors and chose to do the top layer in cream beige, on bottom in caramel brown. I added 3 golden buttons to finish the look and to add an interesting touch. I really enjoyed this pattern, it had no need in modifying which is always like a Christmas morning for me 🙂 So, what do you think?

  1. I love the extra details you´ve added to thise pattern. I have the magazine anl liked the blouse, but I don´t quite understand how that borders are sewed. Is that the envelope folding you refer to? 🙂

    1. Yes, Cristina, you are correct – that’s envelope folding. And if to be honest, that is one of the easiest things I have done in sewing – as long as you firmly press your edges and make a straight seam – you will do fine! Actually, I have just added extra photos of how that folding looks like, take a look 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by 🙂

  2. Thank you for the nice comment on my “dress to pencil hold-in skirt” post:)
    I must say I love your blouse! Think I have to check this one out a little bit closer! This would be the kind of “basic” need for my closet and work attire:)
