The snowdrops blouse

Well here's the blouse I made a couple of weeks ago.

I used the Burda pattern from January 2009. This is the same pattern I used (but only for the sleeves) for this jacket. The minute I tried it on I knew I would be making the blouse.

I really enjoyed making the blouse. I have never made anything so easy and so fast. I like the sleeves excessively.

And I liked it so much I made myself a dress. But while trying to take some photos of it, one of the sleeves tore down so I'll be posting about it later this week.

Oh My you have done so much this past week while I have been away! Everything is beautiful! I especially love this shirt - so elegant and dressy as well. I really want to know what technique you used to gather the sleeves like that! Is that a regular sewing machine stitch?

RheLynn - thank you on the lovely comment! The sleeve is quite easy to be made. The machine stitch is regular - you do the gathering yourself. The sleeve is actually two pieces and when you join them with the center piece the sleeves acquire this shape. Maybe I didn't explain it well. I can e-mail you the technical drawing if you like. It's a Burda (the magazine)pattern.
