Tulips are blue

Finally a new blouse! Currently, I am trying to reduce my fabric stash. It definitely has gotten way too large!!! How do you try to manage your fabrics?! And what amount is normal and what amount shouldn't be surpassed?!...


 Anyways, if you know me already a little longer you might recognize, that I made this blouse once before. Though with a huge bow (wanderlust). This time I chose to make a smaller one because I only had one yard of fabric. 

If you like simple projects, I can only recommend this pattern to you. It took only about 3 hours to finnish it and no alterations were needed.

By the way, I was lucky last week and experienced a happy finding! I am going to show you that one soon! Just have to work on it a little more.


Have a good monday and a wonderful week everybody!

    nette, i want to say this for a long time.. you hv a very attractive face. Not the typical beautiful prototype but definitely one which draws people's attention. Not sure if you could read Chinese (i know your mum came from Taiwan..). I would say you have special 氣質 : )

  4. Hi Nette! Such a beautiful simple shirt, glad you picked this from your fabric stash! The color is so pretty and I'm thinking I could use a few blouses like this...My stash is also just getting bigger coz for everything I use I buy a few times more fabric...

  5. What a lovely blouse! I'm not familiar with Burda magazine so this may be a silly question, but is this pattern also available through Burda Style online?

  6. So pretty, I love the print! I made this blouse once before but I used a sad fabric and I've never worn it :(
    About the stash, I share it with my mum and it has gotten out of control a long time ago. I try to buy new fabric only if I have a specific project in my mind, but I can't help it, my mother and I are shopaholics :)

  7. Gorgeous. I must say that I like the more moderate bow better - Just my preference, not yours of course.

  8. voll schön ist sie geworden. ich war gestern bei marimekko und habe festgestellt, die haben auch stoffe. und was für welche. und jetzt suche ich ein schönes projekt, wozu ich einen stoffe verwenden könnte. dies bluse ist definitiv in der engeren auswahl.
    mein stoff-stash wird dadurch nicht kleiner. das ist auch sehr schwierig. aber ich finde das schön. mein stoffschrank ist der tollste im ganzen haus :-))

    Thank you so much. Your compliment made me blush! :D Actually, I can't read Chinese, but Japanese, so I could understand what you wrote. :)

    Hopefully, you will read this Andrea. I found a downloadable version on Burdastyle.com. It is a little expensive, but if you can't find the magazine, e.g. at your library, it definitely is worth it (at least I think so! :D).

    hihi, it is the same with my mother and me! "oh, look at this fabric, we could use that (later)." and then new fabric is bought! hahaha...no chance to ever finish that stash, I guess! ;)

    Du hast echt Glück, dass es bei euch einen marimekko Laden gibt! Ich würde auch liebend gern mal ein wenig Geld dort lassen! :) Die Bluse kann ich wirklich nur empfehlen, insbesondere, wenn man es mal schnell und einfach haben möchte! ;) Und mit dem Stoff-Schrank muss ich dir recht geben! Der ist jedes Mal wie eine riesen Schatztruhe! :P

    Thanks Tilly! :D The pattern is from an older issue of Burdastyle (10/2010). There is also a downloadable version, but that one is a little expensive, in my opinion. You can find it here:

  17. What a pretty blouse! I especially like the collar, it gives it all its charm. I hope to sew a shirt in this style soon!
