My second blouse for Gaby. I doubt it will get any wear this year, as the weather is getting colder, but anyway, there will be other summers.
This summer I saw quite a few Adrienne Blouses by Friday Pattern Company and I really came to like the big sleeve style. I did consider for a minute buying the pattern, but then I came upon a few reviews, in which the seamstresses shared the modifications they had had to make to the pattern. The original is a bit primitive, with identical back and front pieces and a completely symmetrical sleeve without a sleeve cap. To improve the fit they had raised the back, modified the sleeve to accommodate for the new back line and one of them had added a sleeve cap and a curved sleeve hem. Having watched that review, it occurred to me, that I have the perfect Burda pattern for this blouse - Burda 6202. It had the raglan sleeves with sleeve caps, low front and higher back, all I had to do was add volume to the sleeves.
For this purpose I simply cut the sleeve pattern, taped additional 20 cm width, smoothed the curve of the sleeve cap and curved the hem - higher (shorter) at the front and lower (longer) at the back - and voila - a new top was born.
The blouse can be worn tucked in or outside the bottoms, surprisingly I prefer it tucked in.
