The Black Dotted Blouse!

Hi Everyone!

I’m so sorry it’s four months since my last post, but I’ve been very busy. Especially at work! Here’s the blouse I promised you!


Yes, that’s also a pink race car! I was helping my dad in his shop when these pictures were taken… 🙂

Here’s a better picture:


So, this is the second piece of clothig I’ve made, the first during my sewing education after what felt like an eternity of pillowcases and bags… 😉

When I made it back in 2010, after measuring myself, my teacher insisted on going up to a size 38. Well, it’s a bit big so I think I should have chosen size 36. But it fits in the shoulders, so I’m happy to chinch it in with a belt 🙂

The pattern is from a Burda Style magazine we had available at school, but I don’t remember the issue number, and I can’t find it on BurdaStyle… If you want something similiar, look for puffed raglan sleeves and a pointed collar 🙂

The fabric is from Panduro, white dots on a black background in 100% cotton. After several washes, it’s now more of a dark grey, so I guess the dye isn’t that good, but the cotton is soft and comfy 🙂

The white buttons are so cute, with little carved flowers 🙂 I’d wish they photographed well, but they don’t, so you just have to believe my word on it 🙂

And I promise that hemline is straight! (In real life, anyway) 🙂


Here’s the back:


All in all, it’s a nice everyday blouse I think 🙂


Now I’m off to watch Trinny and Susannah: Mission Norway 🙂

Happy Thursday!
