When I saw this fabric, I knew I had the pattern to turn it into a blouse.

It took me like forever to get the front piece and collar right.
I took the time to make sure the front pieces matches. It has a zipper on the left side.

You can't see but the front piece is made out of 4 pieces and has darts.
(hope it makes sense, not sure how to explain in English  Embarrassed )

I love the way it came out, I think it looks Dutch!



Thanks for looking! Smiley

That looks really wonderful. And indeed it does look like a spiced up old fashioned Dutch "kiel".
With darts, do you mean "figuurnaden"?
Well done anyway.

Thanks everyone, always nice to get compliments... Kiss

To Smallhold:
Yeah, darts are "figuurnaden" and it does look like a "kiel". I also think it looks a bit "Delfts blauw".

I agree with Malurengifo, it looks quite professional and the fabric is stunning. Smiley

Did you use a particular pattern when making it?

Thanks!

Yes, I used a pattern out of a Dutch sewing magazine that I get every month. (Knipmode, to be precise)
It wasn't that hard, but I made it hard by choosing this fabric and wanting to get it straight and the front pieces to match
(as far as that was possible).
The fabric was actually quite cheap, hahaha, which makes it even more satisfying when it turns out as planned  Grin I ordered that online and it turned out to be even better in real life.
Hope that helped!
