Were you able to figure out from my last post that I was working on Burda 7576? I made view C and view B; the blouse and pencil skirt. This pattern also comes with view A, a tailored jacket. The skirt is lined, has a front vent, has shaping darts in the front and back and has an invisible zipper with a button at the top. The blouse has 3 buttons up the back of the neck, as seen in my last post, a gathered neckline, and narrow sleeve hems. I cut a size 12 for both pieces. I normally cut the size 10 in Burda patterns, but the final measurements on the 12 were closer to the amount of ease I like to have in my clothes.
My blouse is made from a cotton voile that I purchased online at Fabric Mart for around $6.00/yard. I see the print is available in a silk/cotton blend at Hart's Fabrics for $12.99/yard. The skirt is made from a dark gray linen/cotton blend from Vogue Fabrics, and is lined in gray Bemberg Rayon. Both fabrics were easy to sew with. The skirt fabric does wrinkle easily, but the cotton gives it some stability which made it suitable for a pencil skirt. I blind hemmed the skirt with my machine, and I inserted an invisible zipper. I may take this zipper out and reapply, because it is light gray rather than dark gray, and it is a little bit visible.
Here is the completed outfit:
