The Danielle pattern is a favourite of mine (Here and here) and this was yet another go at making a quick blouse. The fabric, a printed cotton fabric, was originally intended for a double layered dress (The Azalea), but when I couldn’t find a good fabric for the second layer the first fabric became a blouse instead. The only alteration is the length of the pattern.
With this attempt I’m really pleased with the pouffiness of the sleeves, I used a wider rubberband for the end of the sleeves for this version than I did for the dress and also, more importantly, I used a tighter fitting rubberband. I’m learning something new with every go! Project Summary Pattern: Burdastyle 9306, Danielle Difficulty: Novice (Burdastyle’s rating – I agree) Alterations: Just the length Fabric: Printed cotton. Lining for bodice part. Notions: Invisible zipper, rubber band Project rating: I love how the sleeves turned out. They’re perfect! It became a usable blouse.
