A taste of Victorian romance

The long peplum at the back of this blouse gives it a taste of Victorian romance. The pattern is from  Burda 04/2012 and it can be found on http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/peplum-blouse-042012. The model was easy to sew. The only thing I changed is the size. I decreased the pattern to size 34 as it was not available with the original pattern. The fabric I used is a blend of cotton with metal threads, which was left from making the Folded Yoke Blouse. I like this fabric a lot because it creates more of a wet-look effect than shine. 


  1. I saw this blouse in the Burda magazine and thought "Well, it looks oookay". But your version makes me feel like I need to make one as well, immediately. It looks great, especially with this belt!!! I am searching for one of these belts, but I haven't found one until now. I am curious to see what you do next. Just subscribed :-)

    1. Thank you, Fara! I am very happy I have inspired you to make one. It is really easy to make. I like this blouse a lot. I wore it last Christmas and had a lot of fun with it.

      Happy sewing :)

      P.S.: I bought the belt long time ago but you can still have a look at Mango if they still have it.
