Tie-Front Blouse

Pattern: Burda Style's Tie-Front Blouse #118B
Fabric: cotton blend shirting
Cost: $7

I've been adoring this shirt ever since I saw EllaLeoncio's version. Christmas came in February this year and I rounded out my stash at the fabric store with this (thanks mommy!). At under $4/yd, it was one of my cheaper puchases. I added longer sleeves because it's freakin cold again, but I left the bow the full size on EllaLeoncio's advice, becaue it really does make the shirt. The Burda instructions are vague as always (what about some illustrations people!) but overall it's a great printable pattern because it really is just three pieces--front, back, sleeve--with the measurement for everything else given in the instructions.
