I’m taking the Build a Better Blouse class on Pattern Review which starts next week. The plan is to use the 1-2008-106 tuxedo blouse from Burda World of Fashion.
When the previews for the January edition went up, I knew I wanted to make the kooky double cuffed shirt below in a red, black and white stripe I had. Luckily, both 105 and 106 are the same base pattern, so getting the fit right for one will solve the other.
Over the weekend I worked on a wearable muslin of #106 and am 75% done. I have about 20 more buttonholes to make and sew on 32 buttons. I’m not exaggerating. The pattern calls for 32 buttons total.
