Jersey Camisole and Blouse

April 15, 2008

Jersey Cami, originally uploaded by fmirela.

Tired of waiting around for my husband to feel like taking pictures, I took these with the remote, since I have a long queue of projects I wanted to write about.

Pattern: Burda WOF 12/2006.
I like this top a lot, but was in more need of a sleeveless, with built in bra camisole. I made only the front based on the pattern and lowered the back, added the spaghetti straps and turned it into this comfortable camisole.

I have found this elegant Blister Pearl in a silver setting, in a small Bayside Mall shop, Miami. It is very comfortable on silver satin ribbon, tied in a bow at the back.

Pattern: Burda WOF 10/1998

This has to be one of my favorite patterns for a blouse. I must have sewn this at least a dozen times. It can be made out of narrow fabrics and can be made with or without the back darts. The cowl neck is really easy to finish, no seams are visible on the right side and I like to make it a bit looser/larger than what the pattern suggests.

I wear this over the cami made in the same fabric and with the Eva Jacket and Burda Skirt made in that gray paisley jacquard.

    Classy! And I love that you got two tops out of the same one– I usually end up with too much fabric and am never sure what to do with it because I’m not sure about having two garments from the same stuff!
