Origami blouse - second version



English Nederlands

Based on the comments on my first version I made this blouse again.

This time I used a size 38, took out a little bit of the height from the back shoulder and did a FBA. Further I made it 4 cm longer in the waist. It's not perfect, but better. The length did a lot to improve the overall image, especially in the back. As Marji mentioned it was too wide at the hem, but this was mainly because the width was not in the right place, but I took out a bit of the width all the same.
As my waist is narrow I have to make sure that the width for the hips is at the right place.(remark from my daughter this weekend when I asked her opinion about a couple of patterns for my next jacket: "Mum, why do you always wear boxy jackets? You have a good waist, show it!"). Should take her advice.




Conclusion: I like this blouse because of the origami detail. I'm not completely satisfied with the sleeves, but will stop fussing with them on this blouse. Perhaps I should make a sloper like Vicky did in her recent posts. Would be very helpful.
Ik heb deze bloes opnieuw gemaakt en aangepast n.a.v. de reacties op de eerste versie. Ik heb maat 38 gebruikt, een beetje van de hoogte van de schouder afgehaald aan de achterkant en een FBA (=full bust adjustment) gedaan. Ook heb ik het patroon in de taille 4 cm langer gemaakt. Het is niet perfect maar wel beter. De lengte draagt veel bij aan het beter beeld.
In een reactie zei Marji mentioned dat de zoom te wijd was, maar dat werd vooral veroorzaakt doordat de ruimte niet op de juiste plaats zat.
Mijn taille is smal en daarom moet ik goed zorgen dat de ruimte voor de heupen op de juiste plaats zit. Opmerking van mijn dochter dit weekend toen ik haar mening over een paar patronen voor jasjes vroeg: "Mam, waarom maak je altijd van die vierkante jasjes? Je hebt een mooie smalle taille, laat dat zien!" Misschien moet ik naar haar advies luisteren.




Conclusie: ik vind dit een leuke bloes door het origami detail. Ik ben niet helemaal tevreden over de mouwen, maar ga hier niets meer aan veranderen. Misschien moet ik een pasmodel maken zoals Vicky heeft laten zien in haar recente posts. Zou erg nuttig zijn.

Sigrid, the blouse has a very good point, and I think the long is the appropriate with respect to the previous blouse. Indeed, the detail front of the "origami" is beautiful and very laborious. Thanks for the photos. Greetings. Paco

The blouse is very nice and I agree with your daughter, you've got a beautiful waist, so yes, show it!

So stunning. And if your daughter gives you a compliment like that, by all means take her advice!

You should always listen to your daughter ;o) This blouse is really nice and I can't see what's wrong with the sleeves!

Isabelle said...

Great job, Sigrid. It was brave of you to do the blouse again.
I have already admired your beautiful hourglass figure, and your new blouse really shows it off well.

Vicki said...

Yes, the new one fits you better. It is a lovely blouse with the origami front. Much nicer than a plain white shirt.

Thanks for the link to my blog. I really must get back to it. It has been so hot here that I haven't been able to sew. But today it is much better but I am too busy. Oh well, that is life.

I love this blouse and the origami placket makes it unique! I also like the longer version better on you!

You *do* have a very good waist. And the origami is so fabulous. There's an easy fashion with some of this detailing I've been eyeing up.
