Finished Product – Birdcage Blouse

After a few mishaps with the lining I finally finished up the Alexander Blouse.

I made a couple adjustments to the pattern such as adding 5 inches onto the peplum and adding a placket on the left front side to avoid any gaping.

And here’s a shot of the innards… Since my fabric was a bit light/see through, I lined it with a light muslin. I remember when i dreaded lining a project, now adore how clean and pretty it looks!

I already have a new project on the block that I’ll introduce tomorrow!

    Love this top! The fabric is too cute, and I love the shape of the blouse. I also like your hair in that neat little bun; it suits the blouse!

    Oh! It’s so pretty! I have to get this pattern. Was it easy to make? That fabric is such a find. And I have to echo Reana – you’re hair looks so cute up like that.

    Once I figured out the shoulder gather it went fairly easily. Burdastyle directions are just never quite in depth as I’d like them to be.

  4. You are super quick with sewing! Love the blouse. i downloaded it and hope to make it. Very pretty.

    the print is just adorable and the shape is great on you. After I read about your plans to sew it, I checked out the pattern again (which before wasn’t that appealing to me) and realised I already had the cutest printed cotton fabric at home, so I made one, too. Thanks for the inspiration.
