A blouse like a summer breeze

easy-breeze-blouse

I used a tshirt pattern from a june 2008 edition of Burda to make this blouse. It has just to pieces and I love the square sleeves and the relaxed fit.

I like to experiment with patterns that are designed for a different type of fabric that the one I’m going to use. Sometimes it’s a disaster (remember the bloomers?:), other times you get to make something really beautiful.

I used a sheer cotton embroidered with tiny red, yellow, orange and blue lines and sewn four rows of elastic thread at the bottom hem to make it gather nicely above the hip.

Now, al this blouse needs is a walk on the beach 🙂
