Burda Plus Fashion: FW-10-413
Pattern Sizing: European plus sizes: 46 - 54
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the collar. I also liked the more fitted silhouette.
Fabric Used: I bought this fabric at the Fall PR Shopping day at the end of August. According to the sales associate at Elliot Berman in NYC, this fabric is French cotton. It had a stiffer hand than I expected in a cotton. It reminded me of chintz and the needle left holes in the fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:One of the things I love about Burda is that I usually don't have to make any pattern alterations. I might have given myself a little extra room in the belly, but it was more of a preference than a necessity.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I'd like this blouse in a solid color. I'm sure I'll sew it again.
