I finished this blouse in time for Me-Made.-May.
The pattern is the Burdasyle Sewing Handbook blouse, pretty much unaltered. The fabric is a viscose, purchased at the winter sale, so it was pretty cheap.
The blouse fits me fairly well and the size is good. I do want to try and alter the pattern, but I figured an original go would be the best for me to get to know the pattern.
In retrospect I wish the bodice was a bit longer, it’s pulling up on me. Note that I’ve paired the blouse with my Lessons Learnt Skirt, and I wore this outfit for Me-Made-May already.
Project summary: Pattern: The Burdastyle Sewing Handbook blouse Difficulty: Intermediate. It was plenty of pieces to keep track of, but the sewing was pretty easy. The instructions were clear with many pictures. Alterations: Did an elastic both in the front and back. Omitted trim. Omitted zipper, I could get the blouse over my head. Fabric: Viscose Notions: Thread,elastic, interfacing. Price: Fabric 38 SEK (€4.20), thread + interfacing + elastic 7 SEK (€0.77). Total: 45 SEK (€4.98).
Project rating: This blouse is not really my style, but I wanted to get to know the pattern. I think it will be used, but not on highest rotation. It was cheap, though!

That was my most recent project too! Except I did alter the sleeves. I also found that the side zipper was unnecessary–I put it in, but I wasn’t really thinking when I took it off after the first time I wore it, and then realized I hadn’t really needed it after all. Oh well. The blouse looks good!
