More finished

Wey hey, first Burda magazine pattern finished - not bad as I had a Spanish edition and so was trying to follow the instructions in Spanish...

This came together pretty easily. I like the button loops, neck and sleeve binding and the overall style. I traced size 40 and added 2 cm to the back length. I also chose to finish all seams as well as I could either with false French seams, or binding (the armholes) etc instead of zigzagging them and I like this very much. Nuts, I know. Anyway, this will be a smartish blouse for going back to work.

NB The Spanish magazine version has a different cover and name - but the same patterns and pattern numbers as the international magazine. So this is blouse 103 from the August 2008 Nueva Burda or Burda World of Fashion.
