A SNAPPY OUTFIT!
Some of the following photos to be filed under The Futility of Photographing Black Garments. You’ll just have to imagine that you can actually see the style lines and details!
This is the BurdaStyle Wrap Blouse from the 04/2014 magazine, but also available online here: http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/wrap-blouse-042014. I’m also sporting a Love Notions pencil skirt which I’ll discuss more below.
Back to the blouse: I made one back in 2014 in black crepe (see below), but it met an untimely demise when I bent forward to pick something up — there’s a good chance it was a cat — and the centre-back seam split apart. It wasn’t a matter of just restitching the seam; the crepe weave had actually pulled apart so there was nothing left to sew. Note to self: size up next time. Or find some crepe with elastane.
