I was doing a little window shopping a few days ago and saw this ruffly blouse at The Gap. It immediately made me think of this pattern I have had for awhile so I decided to sew it up this weekend. My sweetie and I were going on a date on Saturday to take an Argentine Tango lesson (LOL) and I thought the blouse would be pretty. I have attached some tango pics as well for your enjoyment hahaha!!
Fabric used: I am unsure. It may be some type of Crepe. Maybe Gauze. I have had it for 2 years in my stash. It wasn't the easiest to sew with that is for sure. At first I was going to use this silky Japanese print but for whatever reason I can't bring myself to use it for anything. It is so pretty!! haha
Complexity of pattern: Beginner to Intermediate. I did do some changes to the ruffles. Instead of hemming the ruffles, I did a small overcast on them. Very similar to how the one from The Gap is made. Trying to hem this fabric was basically a nightmare. It worked out well and saved me alot of time.
How long did it take to complete: 4 1/2 hours
Overall Review: I really really like this pattern. I definitely plan on sewing this pattern again. I have several fabric pieces I could use for this. I think I could wear this blouse to work with a jacket over it.
