Finished / Klaar 01-2008-125

English Nederlands
The blouse is finished, and I'm very happy with it. Though I will have to think about wearing it when needing a coat for a long time, because of the linen the sleeve will wrinkle easily. Matter of experience I guess.
Setting in the sleeves was easy, but I didn't manage a French seam there. It's the only place I used my serger.
A complete serie of magazine pictures and blouse on me you can find here.

And what's next? Muslins probably, and my daughters jeans (she wants to work on this together, and she didn't have a lot of time due to all schoolwork).
De bloes is af, en ik ben er erg blij mee. Een beetje uitkijken met een jas, want het linnen kreukelt natuurlijk snel. Ervaring zal het leren.
Het inzetten van de mouwen ging probleemloos, maar ik heb er geen Engelse naad van gemaakt. Dit is de enige keer bij deze bloes dat ik de overlocker gebruikt heb.
Foto's uit de Burda en meer foto's van mijzelf met deze bloes kun je vinden op: here.

Wat is het volgende? Waarschijnlijk proefmodellen, en jeans (uit een Knip van vorig jaar) voor mijn dochter. Daar wil ze samen aan werken, maar ze heeft nu door schoolwerk niet zoveel tijd.


  1. You have done a beautiful job! It fits you perfectly.

  2. This shirt is really nice. Though I haven't picked it up first, I'm now considering it...

  3. What a lovely blouse! It is beautiful on it's own and in an ensemble.

    For the armholes, I usually bind the seams with a bias binding when I do French seams for the rest of the garment. It involves a little hand finshing, but looks really nice. If the fabric is too thick to self bind, silk organza works well, too.

  4. It is beautiful, Sigrid, and that collar stand is perfect!

  5. Perfect! I don't know how the fit could be better ;-)

    Thanks for the collar stand tutorial.

  6. You look elegant and beautiful in the blouse. Wonderful!

  7. Gorgeous blouse, and it looks like dynamite on you!

  8. So cute and fantastic with the vest. I have to say my puffy sleeve shirt wrinkles like the dickens when I wore a jacket with it. I chalked it up to all the excess fabric.

    You look so sharp!

  9. Sigrid, your blouse is beautiful! This makes a lovely outfit.
    Thanks again for sending me the code for bilingual posts. It works this morning. My French readers are grateful to me, and I, to you!! Thank you!

  10. First ~ thanks for the link to the additional pictures! It was really nice to be able to see front, back and sidewise views of the blouse and sleeves.

    Second ~ what a great and different white blouse this is! I especially loved it paired with the vest and skirt.

  11. Sigrid, this is one of the best looking blouses I've seen in a long time! Well done!

  12. Your blouse is perfect and inspiring. I am finishing a white shirt from the same issue. Now I want one like yours, too! Well done!
