Burda 7255

My name is Rike, I recently started sewing again and just finished my first project in more than 10 years. I wear a lot of vintage clothes and so I decided to use a vintage inspired pattern, Burda Nr. 7255. It is a very sweet and simple design, with a bow and pleats on the back. It’s the kind of garment that I see in fancy boutiques but don’t buy because it is just a bit too expensive – it makes me very happy to be able to make similiar things by myself (-:

  • I love the blouse. Great fabric. I wish more women were into vintage styles. They’re classy and so much fun. I love the 30s and 40s. Maybe it’s watching all those classic films.
