I spent Tuesday afternoon and into the evening sewing up today’s look. Just the blouse, mind you, but I did complete it in time. Whew!
This cowl neck blouse is sewn from Burdastyle Pattern 7519. It’s a quick and easy pattern with only two pieces. Sewn from a silky synthetic that I purchased on the sale rack it has a nice drape. I’ve sewn this one before, but in the past I made a much larger size, which ended up being too big for me. You can view my earlier creation here.
I sewed the sleeveless version. I enjoy wearing sleeveless, for the very fact that I can layer a sweater over it. And living in California with all the micro-climates, it’s a nice option to have.
Here is the picture that I posted on Flickr for the Me-Made-May 2012 group pool page.
