Summer top finished

BWOF 06-2008-109

 

A better result with a BWOF pattern. Though it might not seem like it from my last posts, I still love BWOF a lot, only they seem better suited to make patterns for those with a bit more experience. For this blouse I took size 40 and tapered a bit wider at the hips. Because of the gathering of the front to the yoke and in the side seams, I trusted not to need a FBA, and it's fine without. Too much gathering at my narrow shoulders isn't good either, but this is just right.

For me a perfect summer blouse, which I can wear in the coming week. High temperatures are predicted, and already today it's warm with high humidity. Not the kind of weather I prefer.

So cute! The blouse I made from this pattern was really not a success, but it looks fantastic on everyone else who's made it. Hmmm....

Love it! Red, of course, is my favorite color, so I am a bit biased. The style looks great on you and emphasizes your small waist.

Lindsay T said...

I'll take one just like it!
