Burdastyle Peasant Blouse in Burnout Velour
This top was a long time in the making. I knew as soon as I bought this fabric what it was destined to become. The fabric is a lovely burnout velour from Cotura Fabrics end of season sale that I bought at the end of winter last year. The pattern that I chose is Burdastyle 01/2016 114A. This lovely drapey fabric was always going to work with this pattern and it certainly helps that Burdastyle had used a similar fabric on one of their versions.
I drew my pattern up using a sharpie and plastic which is my usual option with Burdastyle patterns. I made it to a size 38 grading to a 40 at the hips.
The only change I made to this top was to make shoulder ties instead of cording like the pattern instructions.
This pattern has very interesting sleeve openings and I was a little concerned that they would be quite annoying to wear but actually they are anything but. I am quite a fan of this style of peasant blouse and this top is no exception. I have found that Burdastyle patterns can be a little hit and miss but this one is definitely a keeper.
