This is my first post in the new Designer DIY section of the website, and I’m really excited to share it with all of you. I saw this DVF blouse a few months ago, immediately fell in love with it and knew I could make it pretty easily and for much cheaper (it retails for $225). I had gotten this burberry sheer chiffon for a crazy good deal (a 2 1/2 yard remnant at 6$ a yard, on sale at 50% off with an additional 15% off coupon) and had been racking my brain as to what to use it for… and then it hit me that it would be perfect for this project! I used Burda’s 7299 pattern in view B. I always make my garments out of muslin first so that I can have a fabric pattern and also to ensure a perfect fit and in this case I’m glad I did. I made the muslin in the size true to my measurements according to the patterns chart and it was enormous. I ended up cutting the final pattern two sizes smaller and still had to take in 1″ on both sides. I love this shirt for the endless options it leaves for making it… you could use a satin like it’s pictured in the mint color or a use chiffon like I did, you could take the sleeves off to make a fantastic top for summertime, etc. Click here to see more pictures and better views of all the details!
