Burda 7188 – Complete!!


It’s done!!!  I’m so happy to get this done and it will definitely augment the work wardrobe nicely.  I am going to make some more of these once I find some fabric that I really like.  The hardest part of this one was actually the buttonholes!!  I decided on these really pretty shank type buttons that matched very closely.   When I made the buttonholes with my buttonhole foot, they were all too small!  I have never had that happen before so I think it’s (maybe) due to these being a shank type button.  I found a button that was a little bigger and made some samples and it worked okay.  I really wish I would have used the even slightly larger button because these are tight to button and un-button.  That’s ok though b/c this shirt is loose enough that I really don’t ever need to undo the buttons; I can easily get the blouse on over my head.   This pattern went together like a champ…I need to do a review on it.

I think next up is going to be a couple of quick tees in some nice muted colors…my basics wardrobe needs to be supplemented a bit.  🙂

I find that because I have signed up for the RTW fast this year, I’m being particularly picky about what I do choose to sew and it has slowed down my sewing.   Is anyone else finding that or am I the only one??

    Nice colour.
    My recent button hole issue is that they have turned out slightly too big. On my recent two shirts the chest buttons keep popping open, not a good look so I will need to sew up slightly.

    With the RTW fast I am also thinking about what I need to make more carefully. I’ve recently done some new tees so I feel wardrobe not too bad. I need to be making things that are going be versatile and will get a lot of wear.

  2. This is so pretty – the color caught my eye but it is so simple and classic in design. And, yes, the RTW fast has me making what I NEED vs. whatever catches my eye. But that is a good thing, too. Maybe my wardrobe will be more coordinated.
