Blouse & Capris

 Another great fabric from the Sewing Bees visit to St Petersburg πŸ˜‰
When I buy fabric I usually have an idea what to sew, 
but normally I'm ending up sewing something quite different than I thought...
Anyway, I was lucky to have enough fabric for both a blouse and capris.
I followed the instruction for the blouse, and it's the first time I have made this kind of split at the front. It was a little challenge to make the rouleau loops and the underlap on the other side, and thereafter cut the slit open, but I managed!



 I started with the pattern for the "Slight flare Trousers" because I wanted to have pockets with the pleat decorations at the sides. While I was sewing the trousers, I thought it would be nice finish the legs with ties instead of flare, so therefore it's a combination of the both patterns.
I'm really happy how it turned out πŸ˜„

Thanks BurdaStyle for featuring my Project!


  1. This 2 look like a cool jumpsuit together!

    1. Yeah, you're right, but it's nice that I can wear them separate as well :)

  2. Nice outfit, Ellen. Like the fabric.

  3. These are beautiful! Love the fabric, and the combination of these Burda patterns. So inspiring!

    1. Thank you very much Melanie! It makes me happy to hear :-)

  4. I love this fabric and think it is great how you used it for a top and capris!
