Finished February Garment - Pink Blouse

Hi everyone!
I am glad that I managed to finish my February garment for MAGAM Challenge on time :) This blouse based on Burdastyle pattern 08/2012, details here on my last post.
Sewing process:
I traced the pattern (size 36), reduced the length of the sleeves 7.5 cm but I leaved  the blouse length same as the original pattern. I omitted the sleeves opening because I didn't have any zipper inside my stash that match the fabric color.
Then I added seam allowances in all edges and transfer the pattern onto the fabric.
I am very lazy this moment, so I decided to skip the muslin and I am very lucky that the blouse fit me nicely. The neckline is right on the place that I like, the bust darts and back darts are fine and allow me to move my body freely. The sleeves are good, I feel free to move my arm too. The only thing funny is the blouse length, they are too long and look unflattering on me.  I have to cut it about 7.5 cm, so the feet of the back darts are almost reaching the hem line. But anyway, I think it looks fine :-)

The picture below is the front blouse, the shaping bust darts are really nice and the blouse length is right for me. This blouse will be perfect for everyday wear and perfect combination for my jeans and flat shoes :)



The picture below is the blouse back, I hope you all can see that the darts feet are almost reaching the hem line. What do you think? Is that fine or I should make the darts shorter?
And the back opening is very cute, isn't it? It's a little bit tricky to sew, especially for a beginner sewer but I will share here on the blog how I did it. Stay tuned, dear readers!
 


And here are the last two pictures of my blouse on my dress form - front and back,




Happy sewing!!

  4. The length is perfect now - it must have been very long - that would not have suited your petite figure at all. The colour is a delight on you - what a pretty top for everyday.
